Computer Recycling :  Old Equipment Upcycling Today Is Hard to Find


So many people aren't sure what to do with their old computers, or IT Equipment that they end up in a landfill rotting and they don't have to be. This is solely because in many places you aren't allowed to throw them out, and the thrift stores won't accept them if they have too many or feel it's too outdated.  Selling online is out of the question, because of size, weight and shipping, truth be told you can't give them away.


FM Recycle in the United Kingdom is so ahead of the game when it comes to upcycling and recycling computers or old or non working IT Equipment.  They say, "Here at FM Recycle we have years of experience in all aspects of computer recycling. We have very strong relations with clients overseas and also have a strong in-house ICT repair team.   We care about the environment, so we believe that disposing of ICT hardware through landfills is a waste and that recycling and remarketing is most definitely the future."

These Monsters Are Wasting Away in Our Homes

Think about it, we are all guilty of it. We have that old computer that runs like a dinosaur, and we upgrade. Some of us change computers more often than we upgrade phones.  With technological advances it become necessary to upgrade, update, and then what happens? The old one sits in the basement collecting dust, or in the attic or garage, forgotten. 

Old Computers Clogging the Workplace

Even businesses who upgrade computer systems often are clueless what to do with the old systems, or even items that can't be saved or replaced. Old towers that perhaps don't work, laptops that may cost more to get repaired than to throw away, sit in a corner of a storage closet or storage room collecting dust.   Truth be told, most businesses don't know what to do with them and don't have the time to figure it out. If the computers are outdated and not worth anything on the internet, they may end up in a big dumpster somewhere.


FM Recycle in Manchester United Kingdom has taken responsibility to doing green goodness on the earth by offering their  Computer Recycling programs that help businesses go green by recycling their old or non working IT Equipment which is UK's Eco Friendly Solution.  They love giving more than adequate information on how to do so.  They offer free services, but even they say, "Sadly, not everyone is aware of services such as these."  If you live in the UK, or know anyone who works there, tell them to spread the word to keep the earth a greener place! 




What about recycling computers in the United States?

Unfortunately FM Recycle isn't here in the States, so you have to get creative and find a place that does accept them.


Here are some tips:
  • Search Earth 411 and see if a place near you can recycle them. 
  • Sometimes artists will use the circuit boards to make artwork, jewelry, or assemblage.  
  • Call small computer repair companies to see if they can use your model for parts. You may be surprised if they can, they may even come and get it.

I think the best place to go to recycle your computer would be in Austin, because there are easy people to deal with, and the service is great too.

I think all hardware that are no longer used, but with useful parts must be salvaged for their parts.

About recycling
According to research, computers became outdated anytime from one to five years. Once the computers are outdated, consumers struggle with ways to properly dispose them. One of the best ways to dispose the computers is by recycling them. Reasons for recycling
Computer recycling plays a crucial role in protecting the environment. Since recycling ensures that the electronics are properly disposed, this aids in ensuring that the environment is protected from contamination. The other importance of recycling is that it protects you. For example if you own a computer that has hazardous chemicals such as dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyl, cadmium, radioactive isotopes, mercury and chromium, you can be injured if the chemical leaks while the computer is still in your house. Through recycling, the computer is removed from your house long before the chemical can start leaking thus you are protected from injuries.

I have been looking for a place where I can learn more about computer recycling. I heard about it for the first time last week and I thought it was pretty interesting. Hopefully I can find a place soon that will help me learn about it.

My cousin has a lot of computers that he wants to recycle, but we do not know where it is that he can go to recycle them. Does he just go to a regular recycling facility or is there a specific place that he has to go? That is what we really want to know and want to find out for sure.
