Asset Recovery: Equipment Recycling

What is Equipment Recycling?

Equipment Recycling is a general term that refers to prologing the lifespan of IT gear through reconditioning and repurposing for use within your IT Infrastructure or elsewhere. Essentially, this term encompasses any method in which a prolonged lifespan is attained.

What Equipment Recycling Options Exist??

In considering equipment recycling, there many avenues one can take. The key point to consider is the ultimate and underlying needs of your business. Do you have an SLA with your customers or are you in a regulated industry that requires all hardware used to store confidential information to be permanently dismantled and disposed of? Do you need a boost in your budget to fuel new projects? Are you interested in a secondary system repurposed for DR, or maybe Test-Dev? These are an example of questions to consider when looking into equipment recycling.
