No matter if you’re upgrading equipment, downsizing your office, or even just doing some spring cleaning, clutter in your workspace starts to add up. One of the most common types of clutter is technology. We have most likely all been guilty of holding on to an old laptop for no reason because it doesn’t take up too much space. You can just place it in the junk drawer and forget about it. This same situation happens in the workspace. Many companies will have outdated laptops they just keep them in the storage closet and they sit there collecting dust. Eventually the office manager finds out the hard way that there is only so much space in that storage closet. At Orlando Recycles, we offer simple solutions for you or your business to safely dispose of your laptops.
Can I Throw Away Laptops?
You should never throw away a laptop or any type of technology. The reason: most laptops contain chemicals and substances that do severe harm to the environment. Some of these toxic chemicals or components include mercury, barium, lithium, lead, and much more. When these chemicals enter a landfill, they have adverse effects on the soil. With runoff, these elements end up having an effect on the water supply and air. At Orlando Recycles, it’s our mission to stop people and businesses from throwing away laptops by giving them eco-friendly alternatives.
How Can I Get Rid of Laptops Without Throwing Them Away?
Electronic recycling is the best alternative to throwing away laptops. Electronic recycling companies like Orlando Recycles make sure that laptops don’t end up in landfills.
