Why You Should Not Dispose Computer â A Discussion - Image 1

Everyone has one or two old school computer stashed inside their basement. Each year millions of such equipments are disposed, including computer, music system and even television. Why this disposal takes place? Why people throw away things that they had once bought with so much delight? There is only one reason. Newer and faster equipments are being introduced every day. People want to upgrade their equipment on continual basis. Thus they discard things that are outdated. Such trend does not present any sign of slowing down, if anything people will continue throwing away objects for the new updated ones.

Disposal Distress

Frankly speaking, disposing computers or televisions or any other electronic equipment is a bad idea. Such items are manufactured with different harmful chemicals. Lead is one of the major chemical that is frequently used to manufacture computers and televisions. When Computer Disposal takes place these equipments get thrown away to the landfill or sea. Do you have any idea what that does to the environment? Land and water both get polluted along with air. Health hazards due to such incident are increasing every day. This is the sole reason, you should not just dispose the computers or televisions. There are ways to get rid of the equipments.

Recycling

There are companies that take away old computers to recycle them. These companies are certified to reuse parts of the equipments or reuse the entire object. Metals used in computers can be reused to manufacture electronics wires. When these materials get reused, the need to mine the land for these objects reduces.

Donating

If you are planning to dispose your computer, you can get hold of a group that will help you find a community like this.

Remember that more than eighty percent of the computers are recyclable. There are small scale companies that use such equipments. Why should you throw away the object when you can easily make a sale and earn some money from it?

Lease computers if you donât want to sale. Someone will be able to benefit from this action. You can repair the item instead of replacing it entirely. Upgrading the equipment will increase durability.

If you are opting for recycling, there are many companies that do the task. You will find ample of them. Make sure to find the right one. Remember that these companies need to be certified to perform such tasks. Never hesitate to check the authorization form before coming to a decision. Ask them about the procedure of recycling.

    Hi Dave

    Thank you for this post.

    One more thing, perhaps corporate can do under their social corporate responsibility initiative is to continue to have 'trade-in' programs so that consumers can return their old devices/equipment to get the new one. Apple has just announced the trade-in program infact (http://www.mytechlogy.com/professionals/tit-bits/forum-details/1513/iphone-buyback-program-to-be-launched-by-apple/)

    Managed disposal could have many advantages including minimal risk to environment, recycling etc..

    Regards

    Jit
