What is happening during Computer Recycling?

Usually the computers and other peripherals taken from you are refurbished with replacement parts or with new software.  These revamped computers are made available to charity organisations, low income individual or communities who can’t afford a brand new computer.  The computer waste collected from you goes through manual dismantling process.  The materials which are separated such as cabling, circuit boards and other peripherals are processed to be used as raw materials to develop new products.

Though all the discarded computers and parts are recycled and sold or given to second hand market, still some amount of discarded parts do go to the landfill. In order to avoid producing computer waste, you should frequently change your computer and accessories.

Why recycling is important
