Technology is evolving at the speed of thought. Or so it seems. That means that today’s technology is practically obsolete tomorrow. It is completely antiquated a year or two down the road. Businesses that wish to remain competitive must continuously upgrade and update their technology to do so. That means a lot of technological equipment that still has some use, even if not viable for the way you do business, is becoming waste every single day. End of life recycling offers you the option to breathe new life into your electronic waste by turning it into something useful for others or breaking it down into smaller parts and pieces that have value in their own rights.
E-waste is a term used to describe electronic waste. It can from a wide range of products including any one of the following or more.
You get the picture. Practically anything electronic counts as e-waste by modern standards. Even modern kitchen appliances have complex computers in many of them that may require recycling to discard carefully and safely for the planet.
There are plenty of reasons to get involved and recycle your e-waste. One of the primary reasons is to do good for the planet and those who will eventually inherit the planet we leave behind. But that is only part of the story. There is the possibility of doing good today by allowing your old technology, tech that is no longer useful to you or your business, to help others who need newer technology than they currently have. End of life recycling allows you to recycle this waste in a manner that doesn’t compromise your personal information or trade secrets while allowing others the benefit that good technology products deliver. Whether this tech goes to startup businesses or school children seeking to learn how to use technology, there is new life for your tech cast-offs. That’s great news for everyone.
If your e-waste has finally seen the end of all its usefulness, though, there are still benefits to recycling for you and your business. You see, these products are constructed with valuable materials, such as silver, gold, and even palladium can be recovered from your e-waste through end of life recycling. In fact, Americans dump approximately $60 million worth of silver and gold each year in discarded cell phones alone. If that isn’t enough, one ton of recycled circuit boards is the equivalent produces between 40 and 800 times the amount of gold contained in one metric ton of ore.

End of life recycling refers to recycling that is done once your electronic waste has outlived all possible usefulness. Either the systems can no longer be updated or your items are simply broken beyond repair. Regardless of the reason, these items are often landfill-bound if drastic action isn’t taken. That would be the worst possible fate for these items, the planet, and your wallet. Especially when recycling these items could have so much to offer you, financially speaking, in the raw materials they can be broken down into.
Electronic equipment is made with many items that are not only valuable and well worth recycling, but also toxic to the planet. Recycling these items keeps them out of landfills where they can contaminate soil and local water supplies, essentially poisoning the planet. However, that is far from the only benefit that end of life recycling offers.
