If your business has more than a small office's worth of computers, copiers, and other business assets, you will eventually face the need to recycle everything. Disposing of electronics without recycling is hardly an issue these days, as legal restrictions and recycling incentives make it either illegal or unprofitable to throw everything to any curb or dumpster you can find. Here are a few recycling and office asset movement tips to make disposal as efficient and economically stable as possible.
Whole Unit Versus Scrap Recycling
When you need to remove office equipment from the building, keep in mind that once everything is outside, it's hard to get everything back in. For this reason, you need to decide between full unit recycling or scrapping the equipment as soon as possible.
Consider the scrapping option first. Scrapping is the most labor intensive, as it means dismantling object in a timely and efficient manner. Your business will either need to task existing Information Technology (IT) staff or hire technician for the task, and while such tasks are manageable at the entry level layer of experience, it's still time and money spent.
The main reason to go through the effort is for individual recycling prices. Every material such as aluminum, copper, gold, tungsten, and plastics will be linked to a specific recycling rate that changes on a daily basis. Your business may want to hold onto certain materials until a good price arrives, then send in the materials to a recycling center to take advantage of the recycling payout.
This assumes that you have someone tasked to watching these recycling rates, as well as sufficient storage for the scrapped materials. This is why it's most important to decide on your recycling beforehand, as it's more hazardous to send professionals outside to dismantle systems unless you have absolutely no space. You'll likely need to store the dismantled components somewhere inside.
The whole unit recycling is easier, but the payout is an average rate that may not always reflect spikes in individual material prices.
Making The Move With Proper Equipment
No matter your recycling method, you'll need a transport and a destination. Municipal trash likely won't pick up your electronic waste, but you could lease a roll off container to handle your recyclable materials on demand.
The concept behind leasing a roll off container or other recycling container is to make that coveted storage for your employs to deposit their whole or dismantled materials. The ideal containers will either be recycling dumpsters with low opening for easy deposit, or roll off containers with openings that can be walked into. Each option can be sanitized for employee health, and this should be a standard option.
