Many education bodies such as Schools, Academies, College’s and Universities have robust disposal methods for old or redundant IT equipment, usually by acquiring the services of a third-party specialist company or via an internal division who manage procedures across all campuses.
Our primary goal is to enable consideration to reusing old equipment before recycling, too often we have found that the word recycling reflects views of environmentally friendly, green footprint, good for the well-being of society and the planet. Whilst this is true to a certain extent it does exclude more viable options for certain types of products.
There was an estimated 2 billion computers in the world by 2015. To put that figure into perspective it took 27 years for there to be 1 billion computers worldwide, it then took just 7 years to go from 1 billion to 2. At this rate computer giants will be producing and supplying more and more units per year with the average household upgrading devices up to once a year. If just 1% of those computers across the world were to be reused before recycled there would be 20 million less hazardous waste ending up on landfills.
We conducted some research throughout our regular networking events in Kent to determine how advised education bodies were with reusing before recycling. We discovered a vast amount of establishments had no reuse policy across their departments or once items had been removed from site. In essence this meant that although they thought the process and procedures they were undertaking were proficient enough for their internal policies and the greater good for the environment, there is most definitely room for improvement.
