Many large corporations and small businesses alike are looking into recycling their office equipment when they decide to upgrade or move to a new location. With today’s technology advancing so quickly, this leaves a lot of out of date electronics that most companies do not know what to do with after they upgrade to newer options. The same goes with telecommunication equipment. There are new phones, hardware, wiring, and everything else you can think of being upgraded on a daily basis when it comes to the communication aspects of a business or corporation, and this is leaving a lot of waste that people do not know what to do with.
The first thing to do is call an electronic recycling company to handle your transition. They will give you a turnkey service by completely dismantling all of your old phones, cords, fax machines, or anything else you plan to get rid of promptly and without damaging anything. This type of company will send out professionals that know how to take electronics out of an office without disturbing anything, or anyone. After they dismantle everything, this is when they will load it all into their truck and take it to their factory where the recycling process will start.
Everything at the recycling plant is organized onto spreadsheets and then brought to the proper locations. They will then be sorted to different areas, such as plastic, metals, and other categories, so that they can be broken down in a manner in which parts can be reused. Most metals and plastics to wiring and phones can be fully dismantled and melted down to where they can be used again on newer technology. This helps keep electronics out of landfills, and helps out the environment because less mining will be done to produce these metals.
The disposal process follows every regulation of the EPA, and is very environmentally minded. There will be some waste left over that cannot be recycled. This waste will properly be disposed of in the most environmentally safe way. After the company is done with the entire process of disposal and recycling, a letter will be sent to the business in which supplied the old telecommunication hardware stating that the process is over with and that they have successfully recycled their old equipment. This type of technological recycling makes a lot of sense considering our modern times that are run by electronics, and new ways are still being innovated today on how to better recycle old electronics.
