Make Money by Recycling Your IT Assets

When any equipment becomes outdated, look around to see whether it will fit anywhere else

Everyone wants to make money and get the latest in gadgets and electronics.  he best way to do this is to get rid of the old ones and make money in the process by recycling IT assets such as old computer hardware and redundant IT accessories. Computers and IT assets are updated periodically to meet the needs of the information technology world. This in turn makes a lot of waste materials which if used wisely can be recycled and can even cut costs, promote security and save the environment as well.  So whatever way you look at it, recycling works.

moneyWhen any equipment becomes outdated, look around to see whether it will fit anywhere else. When disposed properly and managed well, they can be recycled efficiently so that they can become productive in a different environment. Being considerate about your company’s IT equipment in an appropriate way is an opportunity for IT Company to generate savings and to safeguard the company’s reputation in terms of privacy matters.

You can also create an IT asset disposition strategy as the sad scenario today is that most IT Companies have allowed their companies to become IT equipment graveyards. Their basements are literally dumped with discarded PC’s and old printers. Reselling this equipment can generate money to buy more up-to-date products, rather than just throwing them or storing them well out of sight. Money can also be made by reusing and reselling programs. Sometimes new programs can run just as effectively on old equipment and there might be no need of new ones.  Also it can add to the corporate social responsibility of the company by donating the surplus equipments to non-profit institutions.

Another way to make money is to invest in repairs and restoration. Companies that throw out equipment when they malfunction and buy in new ones to maintain their level of quality will be surprised to find that they can sell restored equipment for good money. The idea of selling parts of the equipment has been around for a long time, but what is more surprising is the fact that restored equipment can sell for much more as a whole than when sold in parts. A little extra effort goes a long way in making easy money.
