Technology is improving at such alarming rates that if you’re using the latest and up to date gadgets, you are more than likely to have old computers lying around that you no longer need. Here are some reasons why computer recycling may appeal to you.
Conservation of Natural Resources
If you choose to recycle instead of throwing out your old computer, you are helping to limit the amount of resources it requires to produce newer electronic items. Many components of old computers can be used after recycling and this includes the glass on the monitor as well as the plastic components.
Recycling the old computers helps to support people in your community
If your computer is in relatively good working condition, it can be refurbished and given to schools or charitable institutions or low income families that otherwise would not have been able to afford a computer. This act of generosity will not go unnoticed and you will be appreciated in your community.
Helping to create local jobs
The electronic items that are recycled and are unable to be further refurbished and reused are sent to local electronic recycling plants to be processed. Hence, the more the people in your community decide to recycle their old computers and other electronic waste items, the more will be the need for more people to be employed in the recycling plant in order to take on the added load. Thus you are indirectly helping the job market to expand and doing your bit in creating new jobs. This is a very laudable effort.
Instead of holding on to old computers in your home that are otherwise collecting dust and are of no use to you, consider recycling them as it is beneficial to the environment as well as your local community, you will get brownie points for your efforts and will also set an example for others to follow.
