You’re probably familiar with this mantra. It’s an easy way to remember the steps you can take to be more environmentally friendly. These three steps can apply to just about any area of life, including our area of expertise – corporate technology. Today, we’ll show you how these three steps – “reduce, reuse, recycle” – are part of a green corporate strategy that can be used by any business to manage their technology and help the environment.
In a corporate setting, the concept of “reduce” goes beyond simply using less. At the heart of the concept, reducing is about the thoughtful use of your company’s resources. There are unseen costs in keeping track of, storing or maintaining unneeded technology. Why spend your company’s valuable resources on equipment that doesn’t generate any return on your investment? Instead, “reduce” by getting rid of your excess IT equipment.
It’s straightforward how reducing can benefit any business – improved efficiency, and better use of company resources. But what about “reuse?” Often times the second phrase in the mantra is skipped in corporate settings. It can take time and effort to find a way to reuse excess technology. Many businesses choose what seems to be the most convenient option: going straight to recycling.
But there’s a simpler, more environmentally friendly option for your unwanted IT equipment. With our complete set of services, IT Liquidators makes it easy to resell or donate your old technology. We will haul away your surplus IT gear, and pay you a fair value on the spot. Our team of refurbishment experts will securely wipe, update, and configure equipment so that it will be ready for reuse through resale.
Reuse is an important part of building a greener future. Because it comes before “recycle,” reusing is actually the greener and preferred option. Reuse – either through resale or donation – slows down the production of technological waste, as well as decreasing the toll on our natural resources from the manufacture of new technology.
The final phrase is “recycle,” but not all recyclers are the same. Believe it or not, some recyclers are “greener” than others. This is why IT Liquidators only uses certified ethical recyclers who comply with local, national and international regulations. Through certification and downstream auditing, these recyclers are held accountable for how they handle all recycled materials. This means no landfills, no illegal export, no unsafe recycling practices.
