​How to Properly Recycle Your Old Electronics

Posted on

If you have an old piece of electronic equipment like a computer, hard drive, stereo, or anything else, it’s important to properly recycle it instead of just throwing it away. At ServerWorlds, we believe in skipping the landfill when it comes to disposing of your old electronics, which is why we are so passionate about recycling or refurbishing these items instead.

If you have old electronics that you’re ready to get rid of, our team at ServerWorlds will take care of everything for you. Keep reading to learn more about the importance of recycling your old electronic equipment, and get started by scheduling an appointment to bring in your equipment and requesting a quote today!

Take Your Old Equipment to a Recycler

The easiest way to go about recycling your old electronic equipment is to take it to a recycler who can do it for you (like ServerWorlds). There are a lot of available options for you to make sure your equipment gets disposed of properly. Some examples of electronics that you should always be recycling are batteries, cell phones, computers, audio equipment, TVs, and more.

To bring your electronics to ServerWorlds, be sure to schedule an appointment with one of our team members today! You can also visit www.call2recycle.org and enter your zip code to find a recycling location near you.

Donate Your Old Equipment

Another option for getting rid of your old electronic equipment is to donate it. If your item still works, there’s likely a charity or nonprofit organization that would be happy to take it off your hands. Do your research to find local organizations that may be willing to take it from you, and make sure to get a receipt when you drop it off so that you can deduct your donation from next year’s tax return.

Organizations like Dell Reconnect, The World Computer Exchange, eBay for Charity, and of course, ServerWorlds all promote electronic recycling and would be willing to take or buy your old electronics from you.

Take Your Equipment to a Tech Firm

Oftentimes, the manufacturers of your electronic devices offer robust recycling programs. Stores like Amazon, Best Buy, Apply, Office Depot, and others allow consumers to recycle their old devices when they visit to buy a new or upgraded version. Some of these stores even offer credits or rebates for customers who bring in their old electronics to be recycled. Be sure to check out all of these stores and more to find out what kinds of programs they offer!

5 Items You Should ALWAYS Recycle

In doing our part in reducing our impact on the environment and the planet as a whole, our team at ServerWorlds has a list of five items you should always recycle instead of throwing into the trash. These items include:

  1. Mattresses: 80% of old mattresses are recyclable, from the springs to the foam.
  2. Beverage pods: toss the aluminum top, grounds, and paper filters before recycling the rest.
  3. Old cell phones: make sure to erase all of your personal data and information before turning your old phone into a recycling center.
  4. Lightbulbs: many LED lightbulbs contain lead, gallium, and arsenic, and they should be recycled by bringing them to big home improvement chains.
  5. Unwanted mail: remove your address from mailing lists online to stop getting loads of unwanted mail.

At ServerWorlds, we’re passionate about doing our part in helping the planet, and it starts with our electronic recycling program. If you’re in the market for a new computer or other hardware and you’re looking for a place to get rid of your old equipment, reach out to us today! We’ll schedule an appointment for you to bring in your items and give you a quote.
