Computer and Laptop Recycling for the Holidays
Are you thinking about upgrading your office equipment by the end of the year? It’s a known fact that most businesses buy new computers and laptops during the holidays for several reasons. Firstly, big brands like Dell, Acer, Lenovo and Apple offer big discounts for the holiday shopper. They often add additional incentives like upgrades with the purchase of one of their products. Secondly, many businesses purchase new computers before preparing a budget for the upcoming year.
With the computer upgrades, what should you do with your old computers? Well, at ProTek Recycling, we can help with that! We even have available options for remote workers. Make sure you ask us about our ProTek eBox when you schedule your pickup.
Let’s find out.
Throwing old equipment in storage is just going to take up unnecessary space. How about throwing it away? Still not a good idea. Disposal of electronic waste in landfills is actually illegal in the state of New York. Computers and laptops contain certain components like arsenic, lead and cadmium that are toxic to the environment.
There is also the risk of having important electronic data fall into the wrong hands, and for government and healthcare facilities, this goes against data security best practices and HIPAA rules.
