Reasons to Recycle

There are four reasons why your business or organizations should be recycling its CPUs and computer monitors:

1. Legal Requirements to Recycle PC’s

New laws have been introduced that make it illegal to dispose of CPU’s and computer monitor screens with the regular office trash. These laws have been introduced to ensure all electronics including, PC’s, laptops, servers and computer monitors are disposed of correctly. Disposing of your office IT equipment correctly ensures that it doesn’t end up in a landfill site where it may cause serious damage to the environment for generations to come. So severe is the threat to life that many States are now prosecuting any business and the individual within the business responsible for disposing of old computers and office electronics if they fail to have them disposed of correctly. By choosing PC-Disposal Recycle IT.com to manage your office’s old, used, broken or unwanted PC’s, computer monitors and CPUS you are ensuring your safety against being prosecuted because we offer a State approved PC disposal by recycling service that meets all governmental requirements.

2. Environmental Reasons to Recycle PC’s

Computer equipment from CPU’s to computer monitors, all contain metals and materials that if exposed to soil and water can be toxic to both human and wildlife. Zinc, Led and mercury are but a few of the elements found in IT equipment, all of which are recognised internationally as harmful toxic waste and need to be disposed of correctly. By far the best, if not only solution is to reclaim these materials via recycling your old computer equipment. Recycling CPU’s and computer monitors for example keeps them out of landfill sites where they stand a chance of leaking into the surrounding environment. We must all protect our environment, failure to do so will pose danger to our life’s today and the life’s of future generations to come.

3. Economic Reasons to Recycle PC’s

Did you know that to recycle a CPU or computer monitor it first needs to be de-manufactured (taken apart). Computers are complex machines and consist of many different parts made from many different materials. There are so many different types of computers, monitors, servers and laptops that it’s not possible to de-manufacture them automatically, the process has to be done by hand and that results in the creation of new jobs. The materials reclaimed have a value to manufactures because they can be reused to make new products. Reusing recycled metals means we don’t need to spend so much money importing and we are less dependent on foreign imports, which is great news for American manufactures.

4. Social Reasons to Recycle PC’s

By recycling your company hardware you are setting an example for others to follow; we all recognize the importance of recycling but how many people actually recycle. When your business recycles it sends a message to others that this is the thing to do not just because it’s right but because any business responsible enough to recycle is a business to respect.

Recycling CPU’s, what’s it all mean?

In disposing of your unwanted, old, obsolete and used office computers, servers and IT equipment you’ll probably be introduced to several words unfamiliar to you. Following is a short appendix of PC recycling terms and their definitions:

E-waste

E-Waste is an abbreviation for electronic waste, the definition of e-waste is any electrical good or item that is ready for the trash. Disposing of e-waste is a nationwide concern because e-waste does not decompose and can contain harmful elements to the environment. Most e-waste is disposed of by metals and plastic recyclers; there is currently a shortage of recyclers in the USA that can manage office and manufacturing e-waste properly. We are part of a program to help you dispose of your business or manufacturing e-waste safely and legally.

E-Cycling

E-cycle or e-cycling is an abbreviation for the term electronics recycling. The definition of e-cycling is any environmentally friendly process that prevents e-waste from being disposed of dangerously. E-cycling refers to the process of electronics disposal via recycling primarily the materials of e-waste such as plastic and metals. However e-cycling can also refer to donation for reuse of old electronics or reconditioning of e-waste for resale. Our CPU recycling program offers your business e-waste disposal by any of these options, the choice is yours.

Data destruction

Data destruction is also known as hard disk drive wiping with one primary difference, a hard disk wipe just destroys all data held on a disk drive whilst data destruction refers to the total destruction of the data and hard drive itself. Data destruction is usually achieved by using software to wipe the drive clean of all business information and any software. The disk is then either destroyed with a magnetic pulse or shredded. We prefer to have the hard drive destroyed by a magnetic pulse and then destroyed via smelting just to be doubly safe. Many clients having their CPU’s, servers and data storage devices recycled request this service.

Recycling

The word recycling refers to reclaiming the composite or comprising materials of an item for reuse. For example PC recycling refers to recycling all the plastics, metals and other such materials held within the components of a computer and its hardware. More often than not metal reclaimed for office e-waste and computer recycling can be reused to make new products. Recycling can also refer to reuse, obviously a computer can be disposed of by gifting it to a charity where it can be reused. This form of recycling keeps the computer in extended use but inevitably when the computer ceases to work it will end up being recycled via the later mentioned process.

Landfill

Landfill is a term used to describe an area of land designated for the purpose of disposing of waste or trash via burial. The idea being that materials buried will decompose over time and be reclaimed into the earth. Unfortunately e-waste such as computers (CPU’s) and office IT equipment do not decompose well and can pollute the earth for thousands of years. It is for this reason that using landfills to dispose of computer equipment and e-waste is being made illegal. In many States it is already illegal to dispose of your office e-waste with your normal trash; even dumping old computers into dumpsters can result in prosecution. Many companies have complained about having to pay to have their trashed, used or unwanted PC’s and e-waste removed but unfortunately this cost is a fact of life in our modern business world. Fortunately the cost of keeping used or broken IT equipment out of landfills is relatively low, you will be surprised just how cost effective our collection for disposal service is.

De-manufacture

The term de-manufacturing or ‘to de-manufacture’ simply means to take apart an item and in doing so separate its materials into groups of plastics, metals, silicon and glass. De-manufacturing is the first step in recycling a computer; it is the most effective way to reclaim the deferent materials used in the construction of a machine. De-manufacturing a CPU (PC) can be time consuming and requires experienced professionals that we call “recycling engineers”. The time cost to recyclable material value usually counters any true economic gain but this process is more about creating jobs and ensuring environmental safety for generations to come than anything else.

Solid waste

The term solid waste refers to materials ranging from municipal garbage to industrial wastes that contain complex, and sometimes hazardous, substances. An old or broken PC ready for disposal is classified as solid waste and needs to be disposed of safely through an authorized facility. Our head office, (New Tech in NJ) provides solid e-waste management for all surrounding States. Our HQ is equipped with state of the art CRT recycling hardware for computer monitors and TV screens, a combined workforce of 200 plus staff and recycling engineers are capable of recycling every type of computer, CPU, server and office electronic known, with the exception of handling radioactive waste from X Ray machines and other such equipment our recycling facilities can pretty much recycle all your office’s electrical equipment. We are a registered and approved computer recycler holding both air and environmental permits. When you ask us to recycle your office computers, laptops, servers and CPU’s you are in good hands.

Toxic E-Waste

We all picture toxic waste as some form of green sludge oozing out of a pipe but did you know that much of your office equipment, computers, computer monitors, printers toners and even laptops are classified as toxic waste. The definition of toxic e-waste is any electrical appliance or machinery that contains toxic elements. The led in a laptops battery for example is toxic; if it leaks into the earth from a landfill it can cause danger to human life. Computers consist of so many toxic materials that become harmful to us if not disposed of properly, this is why we all must recycle and not throw away CPU’s with the trash, even your cell phone or printer cartridge needs to be recycled.

CPU disposal and recycling

The definition of CPU recycling or disposal simply means the disposal via recycling of your offices used computers and computer monitors. The term CPU is a definition of a computers core processing unit (CPU) and is often used to describe laptops, servers, PC, workstations, mainframes and all type of computers that must be disposed of via recycling. We often receive questions from our contact page asking “can you recycle 50 cpus and 50 monitors”, this usually means can your recycle 50 computers and their monitors please and saves the customer the time specifying the type of computers, laptops and servers they want recycling.

Collection for disposal

The words ‘collection for disposal’ appear on nearly every page of this website, they refer to the collection of your junk PC’s and office computer equipment from your location for disposing of via a recycling process. Here at PC-Disposal Recycle IT.com we have a fleet of disposal trucks to help manage and remove all numbers of junk PC’s and IT equipment.


On location disassembly

You may have read in the services and fee’s section of our website the term “on location disassembly”. This phrase relates to a service provided to our clients that need help removing any embedded equipment from their premises. For example we often get asked for help emptying a server room, which involves disassembling racks and mounts. Free standing equipment such as a desktop or PC tower does not require on location disassembly because these items can simply be taken away easily.

E-Waste management

The term e-waste management usually relates to clients that have several hundred computers that need recycling or reconditioning. In some cases it can relate to the ongoing disposal of e-waste such as faulty circuit boards from manufacturing plants. Mostly however e-waste management refers to working out a bespoke solution for a client’s hardware. For example the client may simply want to have all their old computers reconditioned and sold or gifted. In short we offer an e-waste strategy to meet each clients individual needs, we call this service e-waste management.

Reconditioned PC’s

Reconditioning a computer (CPU) or laptop means to take a used computer, clean or change the hard drive and fix it where needed so that it can be reused. Some clients request that we collect and recondition their computers and then ship them to a different location for further use. Other clients ask us to recondition their PC’s so they can be resold, perhaps as part of an employee purchase program. Many organizations that have several hundred used computers ask us to recondition and donate CPU’s to charities, this has many tax advantages as well as ensuring the organization is compliant with State recycling laws.

Office Trash

In many areas of content within this website you will come across the words ‘office trash’, this phrase relates to the garbage or waste produced by an office whilst conducting its day to day operations. Office trash may consist of paper, cardboard, used coffee filters and just about anything that ends up in the trash can of your office. Office trash is separate from office e-waste, although junk computers may be seen as going to the trash they should not be part of your office trash. Usually office trash is designated to landfill sites or paper recyclers. It is illegal in many States to dump used or broken CPUs and other office electronics (including toners) into the trash because they are not meant to be disposed of in landfill sites.
