Businesses buy billions of dollars of electronics every single year. Unfortunately, upgrading your fleet of laptops or phones only adds to one serious problem the world is working to deal with right now - e-waste. Every new machine means one that is suddenly obsolete, and for most businesses, dealing with used electronics is a massive effort.
The Big Corporation Difference
Small to mid-size businesses really suffer when it comes to electronics recycling. Large corporation generally have entire departments dedicated just to focus on and manage sustainability issues within the company. Small to midsized businesses, though, are far more likely to simply toss outdated electronics, even if it risks compliance issues with California's stringent electronics recycling laws. The goal is just to get rid of it, right? Not if you want to remain compliant and work to polish the green image you present to consumers. In cases like those, electronics recycling is an absolute must.
