Why an e-waste bin could benefit your business
In the western world, there’s barely a part of our day-to-day living where we don’t turn to technology. In the home, at work, at school and in the community, technology has transformed our lives.
Our desire to have the latest and greatest gadgets and the most up to date technology means that we’re often quick to replace commodity technology. It’s especially true in the workplace where both employees and consumers have an expectation that they’ll have access to the most recent technology in order to get a job done.
What this means though, is that e-waste is currently the fastest growing municipal waste in the world. Despite technology being so prolific in our lives, the same can’t be said for appropriate facilities to dispose of it.
It’s not uncommon to see home or office storage space occupied by outdated, broken or unusable hardware, TVs, phones, and electronics. After all, you’ve spent so much on it in the first place, it seems wasteful to send to the tip. And given that your hardware may often contain sensitive information, it’s not surprising that you are cautious about where it ends up.
