In comparison to business needs, the environment typically gets put on the back burner or becomes an afterthought at most. A large portion of this is due to the belief that nothing will work. Many still think nothing they do will make a difference, especially small gestures. Reducing your carbon footprint may not seem like a big deal at first glance, but overall it can have a major impact on the environment and doesn’t have to be difficult.
Electronics are a leading cause of toxic waste, and proper e-waste disposal alone can help prevent landfill chemical fires and further pollution of the environment. Technology is everywhere nowadays, especially in the business world. Regular updates can cause retired IT assets to pile up and take up precious storage space. The question then becomes, what do I do with retired IT hardware?
IT asset disposition facilities like HOBI take the headache off clients’ shoulders and dispose of old IT equipment at no cost to the environment. Electronics recycling is an environmentally friendly alternative to landfills and incinerators and mitigates the risk of fire and pollution.
Electronics that end up in landfills can leak toxic chemicals that can soak into the ground and contaminate the surrounding water supply. Over time this can lead to fatal health issues for nearby residents and even the animal population. Incineration burns the chemicals and can lead to air pollution.
Additionally, electronics today are made with Lithium-Ion batteries that can cause chemical fires when damaged. For this reason, recycling is the best option for disposing of old IT hardware.
