In this throw away society of ours, more and more people are turning to Computer Recycling Companies as a way of disposing of their old, unwanted tech.
Years ago you could just throw your unwanted electronic equipment in the bin but back then, this wasn't really an option due to the cost of home and business computers, laptops and mobile phones. In the 'Good Old Days', when we bought a computer or Laptop, we tended to stick with that machine for a long time as the cost of replacing it was in real terms, 10 fold what it is today.
Today, desktop computers, Laptops, Computer Monitors and even Tablets, are now relatively cheap to buy and as, instead of making them last for years, we tend to update them more frequently by buying the latest model.
Enter Computer Recycling Companies
This is why Computer Recycling Companies have started to appear more and more. With the evolution of society, we have become more aware of our environment. So, instead of just throwing your old computer, laptop, monitor, tablet or mobile phone away, you tend to look for more environmentally freindly ways of disposing of them.
CPR Computer Recycling are proud to be one of the Companies that are involved with this method of disposing of old computers.
What Do Computer Recycling Companies Actually Do
This can vary from company to company. Many will simply break down your unwanted computer related hardware. They then send it for refining / recycling returning precious metals like gold, silver and copper back to the raw materials ready for use in other applications. Some of the plastics can also be recycled and reused in a similar way.
Other Companies such as CPR Computer Recycling prefer to re-build and refurbish your unwanted computer equipment. We then sell it on ready for use once again. As with many electronic items, there is often very little that can actually go wrong with them so, this form of recycling can ofeten make even more sense and have a lesser impact on the environment. Should parts no longer be available for certain items, thus making the repair unrealistic, breaking machines down into working spare parts also works well. This enables the repair of other similar comsumer electronic items rather than sending these for recycling.
Interchangable Parts Make Life Easier
In Desktop Computers, Laptops and even Computer Monitors, many of the component parts are generic. DVD Drives, Hard Drives and SSD's, RAM Memory, the main Central Processing Unit. In Laptops WiFi Cards, Graphics Cards as well as screens and often Bezels and keyboards can fit several other machines. Not forgetting of course basic components like screws which by and large, retain certain size and thread standards.
This makes the job of rebuilding failed hardware and upgrading secifications so much easier these days.
So, the next time you are ready to do some Computer Recycling, remember. You now have a choice.Book A Collection
