We celebrated the first Earth Day in the United States 52 years ago, on April 22, 1970. Since then, over 192 countries have begun acknowledging the day to support the environment. Companies, organizations and individuals have increasingly been recognizing the day and various events. This year’s theme is “Invest in Our Planet”.
Recycling is one of the best ways to help the environment and support this year’s theme. Americans dispose of over 6.9 million tons of electronic waste annually. With the frequent updates in technology these days, every company, organization and individual generally has many items that need to be deposed. How we handle technology products is one of the greatest ways that we can all make a difference. Electronic recycling focuses on the reuse and reprocessing of obsolete electronics, such as computers, servers, laptops, cell phones and more. Some equipment can be refurbished and reused by other individuals. The rest of the equipment can be dismantled and precious metals can be recovered, including gold, copper, aluminum, lead, palladium, silicon and more.
Sending your obsolete electronics to an approved recycler is important and can ensure your equipment won’t end up in a landfill or exported to a non-developed country. Bass Computers is a certified Responsible Recycling certified facility. If your organization, company or customer has electronic equipment to recycle, let us know. We are committed to reducing e-waste and ensuring that products are either refurbished or disposed of properly. Reusing and reprocessing of electronic equipment can contribute to the betterment of the environment.
