Finding the right electronic recycling company can be difficult for most because they may have never thought about recycling outdated IT assets or even the monetary value still associated with IT assets if they are in good condition.
Too often we hear “we don’t know how or where to recycle our electronics and IT equipment,” from both large and small companies worldwide.

Sometimes businesses may stick their retired IT assets in a closet or storage space because they don't know what to do with them at the time. As time passes, more and more IT equipment is added and soon it can take over an entire space. Those retired IT assets are actually costing you money, if you consider you might be paying $150 per square foot or more, and your IT equipment is taking up 100 square feet, that's $15,000 of real estate not be utilized.
Unbeknownst to them, those IT assets collecting dust in the closet actually have a value to them and they are losing money by not recycling it. Often, after a couple years of being kept in the closet, the usable life of those old IT assets has passed and little to no money can be retrieved from the recycling process.

Along the way, clients can track the progress of their material through our SmartERP system and to see where in the 8-step process their material is.
