Electronics are used in almost every aspect of daily life. As important as they are, it’s equally important to ensure electronics are properly maintained and upgraded periodically to prevent technical issues. Maintenance can become costly over time, as well as upgrading to new devices. Value-added ITAD services like donations programs help maximize the value of retired IT assets while providing used electronics to those without access.
Retired IT assets pile up in storage closets every year. Not all have reached the end of their useful life cycle, and many companies are taking advantage of the opportunity to maximize the value of their used IT assets by donating them. Donating used IT hardware maximizes value, prevents e-waste from ending up in landfills, and helps bridge the digital divide.
Donations programs are an excellent way to accomplish ESG environmental and social goals. E-waste makes up 70 percent of the earth’s toxic waste, and donating used electronics helps keep them out of landfills, which protects the environment and helps reduce pollution.
During the pandemic, many people were unable to work or complete school assignments due to limited access to technology. Donations programs help bridge the gap between those with access to electronics and those without.
Donating used electronics also provides an alternative sales channel to purchasing new devices which can be extremely costly depending on the model. Many consumers choose to hold onto their devices longer or opt for used devices rather than buying new ones. Refurbishment services help repair any cosmetic or internal damages to a device and ensure it is ready for resale.
