    Where to take electronics for recycling?

    You should take old electronics to a certified electronics recycler. You can find out if a company is certified by asking if they have their R2 certification. These companies meet or exceed international standards for recycling these devices.

    One thing to remember is that these devices should be kept out of landfills. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that upwards of four million tons of e-waste are finding their way into landfills. Due to the composition of these devices, they pose hazards to the landfill environment. Finding a certified electronics recycler is one of the only ways you can confirm that your old equipment won’t be a hazard to the Earth.

    How does recycling electronics help the environment?

    Recycling old electronics helps the environment by keeping these devices out of the landfills. Recycling hazardous waste, which includes electronics, can reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. The water, air, and soil pollution that occurs when these products are manufactured are reduced because recycling means that companies use less raw material, which makes the entire process more environmentally friendly.

    Even if old electronics don’t make their way to the landfill as they are, they still must be disposed of if you just throw them out. In some cases, this means that they are incinerated. This can lead to an increase in air pollution. In some cases, the improper disposal of them can lead to the hazardous materials polluting the water supply.

    What is electronics recycling?

    Electronics recycling is a responsible way to dispose of used electronics that you can’t use any longer. E-waste has many hazards to the environment, the economy, and even national defense if it isn’t disposed of properly. National Defense Magazine notes that counterfeit components that enter the supply chain can cause security hazards. Responsible e-waste recycling minimizes the chance of this happening since resellers won’t be able to get their hands on the used equipment.

    Recycling old electronics is a process that allows certified companies to get these items into a place where they can be refurbished, reused, or recycled. This can help to prevent used electronics from taking up valuable space in the landfills, and it can also help to ensure that new waste isn’t generated as older electronics stop working or are phased out.

    When we upgraded our computers at work, we needed to do something with the old equipment. RAKI got us all taken care of and now we don’t have to worry about a building full of outdated equipment that won’t ever be used.

    Finding out that I could have RAKI pick up my company’s old laptops was a blessing for me. They were all in working order so maybe someone else can benefit from using them if they are refurbished. If not, at least they can be torn down and recycled.
