What’s your new year’s resolution? How about embracing sustainability – let’s go green in 2024.
As we usher in a new year, it’s the perfect time for UK businesses to make their resolutions. And where better to start than with the beating heart of your operations – your IT infrastructure? A fresh year brings with it the perfect opportunity to recycle, repair and responsibly dispose of old IT equipment, not only saving you money, but also giving your eco-friendly credentials a timely boost.
Say goodbye to e-waste
Unused monitors, towers, laptops, tablets, cables – to name just a few – aren’t simply an eyesore taking up precious space, they’re also environmental hazards. If they end up in landfill, they pose serious threats to air, water and soil. So this year, let’s break the cycle.
By using a reputable IT asset disposal (ITAD) company such as Asset Disposal, you can ensure that your outdated tech can be:
Recycled ethically – precious metals and components can be salvaged and given new life, reducing the need to plunder the earth for new resources.
Refurbished and resold – any equipment with life left in it can be given a second chance, a great benefit to small businesses, charities and community organisations.
Disposed of responsibly – any parts which cannot be sued are treated responsibly, preventing potentially toxic materials harming the environment.
Repurposing and repair
Before you go down the disposal route, ask yourself whether that old piece of IT equipment can be repurposed. Maybe it can be used for internal tasks or donated to an organisation. For instance, a cracked screen might be easily fixed.
A key part of sustainable IT is in extending the lifespan of devices through maintenance and repairs, refurbishing or reusing older equipment wherever possible. So make sure you explore ITAD providers that offer repair options.
At Asset Disposal, we offer customers a full repair solution focused on fixing and restoring PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Our experienced technicians offer a comprehensive service, quick turnaround, quality assurance and, most importantly, data security.
You might be surprised at what you can salvage and save.

Secure data destruction – ensure your sensitive information is protected and complies with data protection regulations.
