How to Prevent HP Business Laptops from Tech Landfill
Tech waste is an escalating problem, with an astounding 50 million tons accumulated annually. For organizations committed to reducing their environmental impact, disposing of end-of-life tech plays a crucial role in their sustainability efforts. Let’s say you’ve diligently chosen a fleet of upgraded HP business laptops powered by Intel® processors, an environmentally conscious choice. Now, what steps should you take with the old fleet?
Your retiring HP business laptops are comprised of numerous recyclable components that can contribute to the circular economy. If kept out of landfills, valuable metals like aluminium, magnesium, and even gold can be reintroduced into the manufacturing process. Where new HP business laptops, recycle these elements, reducing the need for extensive mining. Plastics are being recycled for various products, ranging from tech to clothing. Despite having served you well, that old HP business laptop still has a valuable role to play in the tech cycle.
Fortunately, it is relatively straightforward to ensure your HP business laptop avoids landfill and undergoes safe and appropriate recycling. Where the most responsible technology vendors have implemented programs integrated into the procurement process. One standout program is the HP Device Recovery Service, where HP specialists securely remove your data and then refurbish, reuse, or recycle it. This includes your old HP business laptops, desktops, and other devices. If your HP business laptop still holds value, you can receive compensation, making your upgrade more affordable. Alternatively, it may find reuse elsewhere, generating extra value, or be disassembled to provide materials for new products. In any case, it won’t be contributing to the growing e-waste crisis.
