Why Is E-Waste Recycling Important For A Business?
Here at BoxQ Electronics we provide valuable e-waste recycling services for both businesses and consumers. The United States has made significant strides in expanding the recycling infrastructure over the last decade. The ever increasing use of electronics by businesses and consumers has created previously unthinkable amounts of used and broken equipment. While many choose to simply throw out old electronics, this is neither economically or environmentally efficient. Countries like China are rabid consumers of used electronics from America; one Chinese city is home to over 5,000 businesses that specialize in processing discarded electronics! The following are a few examples of how businesses can benefit from electronic recycling and disposal services:
Adherence to Local, State, and Federal Laws Regarding Electronic Waste
All business should be aware of relative laws regarding the disposal of electronic waste. While it may be common sense that a business can’t throw caustic chemicals or other byproducts into the local dumpster, many businesses are unaware that there are specific regulations regarding electronic waste. Failure to follow these regulations can result in hefty fines, civil suits, and in some cases criminal charges. Following e-waste recycling regulations also provides a business with the peace of mind that they are doing the right thing for the environment. Green is in, and more and more consumers are boycotting businesses that are thought to be polluters. Recycling is a smart move for any business.
Throwing Away Money is Never a Smart Business Model
Recycling is not just a smart legal and environmental move—it can pay off financially! Businesses and consumers often don’t realize that some of the electronics they throw out are still of some value. The staff members here at BoxQ Electronics are experts in both selling old and used electronics and finding worthwhile donation opportunities. While not all used or old electronics are eligible for sale, the chance to financially benefit from something that was destined for the dumpster is too good to not look into. Following proper disposal and e-waste recycling regulations is the right financial choice for all business, both in avoiding fines and potentially selling old equipment.
