5R"+" MANTRA - Reduce>Reuse>Return>Remarket>Recycle

ITAD exists in response to considerations in replacing business equipment:

Reuse

Reuse of functional equipment is the environmentally superior recovery option and this is before we consider the additional social economic benefits it reaps and promoted as such in any waste management program.

A computer could be repurposed to be used as a locked-down guest machine that connects through a guest Wi-Fi network for clients or visitors to use.

It’s even worth checking to see if older machines can be re-purposed to be used in a test environment, staff training, as a dummy server or to host company files and information.

The simple 5R “reduce>reuse>return>remarket>recycle” mantra has long served as best practice for organizations or individual consumers wanting to reduce their waste. It’s an excellent principle, but of course there can be complexity in making it a reality. For example, a product might need to be repaired, refurbished or reconditioned before it can be reused.

When considering investing in new ICT equipment, your first step should be to critically assess your needs in order to reduce demand. Can your business function just as well by extending the life of the equipment you currently have or by simply buying a smaller, lower-spec alternative?

Once a product reaches the end of its life, you might consider various ways to reuse it, for example using it for the same purpose but in a different part of your organization; repurposing it within your organization; or remarketing it (refurbished if necessary) to another organization.

You can choose the lease return option that’s right for your business: (1) transportation only, (2) off-site data wipe, (3) on-site data wipe or (4) Buy Out (5) Month-to-Month continuous lease.

*Note: Have a strong policy that allows you to pull the equipment back to IT for a data offload process and a migration (if necessary) to prepare for the return, associates the biggest downside is shipping cost, shipping material and the lost of associated components.

IT Asset Disposition & Recycling

According to e-waste guide in UK, the state-of-the-art recycling of e-waste comprises three steps:

  • Detoxication – The first step in the recycling process is the removal of critical components from the e-waste in order to avoid dilution of and / or contamination with toxic substances during the downstream processes. Critical components include, e.g., lead glass from CRT screens, light bulbs and batteries.
  • Shredding – Mechanical processing is the next step in e-waste treatment, normally an industrial large scale operation to obtain concentrates of recyclable materials in a dedicated fraction and also to further separate hazardous materials. Typical components of a mechanical processing plant are crushing units, shredders, magnetic- and eddy-current- and air-separators. The gas emissions are filtered and effluents are treated to minimize environmental impact.
  • Refining – The third step of e-waste recycling is refining. Refining of resources in e-waste is possible and the technical solutions exist to get back raw with minimal environmental impact. Most of the fractions need to be refined or conditioned in order to be sold as secondary raw materials or to be disposed of in a final disposal site, respectively. During the refining process, to the three flows of materials - Metals, plastics and glass, is paid attention.
