How Is FREE Computer Recycling Possible?

FREE computer recycling offer

Computer recycling is the correct and legal method for the disposal of PCs, workstations, towers, desktops, servers and mobile devices, such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. The recycling process starts with the removal of a business’s old, decommissioned computer equipment and IT hardware.

The removal process has several costs associated with it; these costs are influenced by a range of different factors. For example, does the IT hardware require uninstalling, or is the computer equipment already on pallets and just waiting to be collected? Location is also a factor, for example; are parking permits needed, is there a need for special removal equipment? When you add to this the transportation and insurance costs for the trucks, the drivers and the IT hardware removal teams you might start to wonder just how expensive is it to have your corporate computers picked-up and recycled?

The costs don’t stop with collection either, once removed the old IT hardware needs to be securely stored, sorted and processed. This often includes having the hard drives removed from servers and computers so their digital data can be permanently wiped clean and the hard drives legally destroyed.

Whilst there is truth in the fact that computers contain Gold, it’s only a meniscal amount. Most computers are only worth a few dollars in scrap metal. Unfortunately, the cost of recycling a computer is usually greater than the profits generated from its material value. All is not lost however, the recycling cost equation changes as the number of computers being recycled increases. A company recycling hundreds of computers can actually dispose of them at a net negative cost. Simply put, if you have enough computers to recycle, the profits from materials recollimation will cancel out the cost of removal and disposal. Furthermore, if there are items that can be reconditioned and sold this too can cancel out the cost of disposal and sometimes even generate a profit.

"YBC recycles thousands of computers and helps small and big companies alike to dispose of their IT hardware more often than not for FREE."

YBC can clean, refurbish and resell old computer equipment on behalf of its clients. If a business is disposing of computer hardware that has a good resell value, the profits can cancel out the cost of recycling any less valuable IT hardware the client might also have. As a rule of thumb, call centers, data centers and large office-based companies usually have more than enough IT hardware to cover the costs of having it picked up and disposed of. YBC recycles thousands of computers and helps small and big companies alike to dispose of their IT hardware more often than not for FREE.

FAQ’s About FREE Computer Recycling

Who picks up and recycles old office computers, laptops & IT hardware for free?

If you are looking to have your company laptops and desktop computers picked up and recycled for free you need to call the YBC ITAD computer recycling team. YBC is a computer recycling company that specializes in the legal disposal of corporate computer equipment, such as servers, desktop computers and mobile devices such as laptops, tablet PCs and company mobile phones. The YBC computer recycling service is State permitted, R2 certified and ISO accredited. Services include removal, secure hard drive disposal (digital data destruction) and free computer recycling (terms and conditions apply).

How can you recycle old corporate computers legally?

Recycling work computers legally is achieved via the receipt of a ‘chain of custody document’ (CCD). The CCD lists serial numbers for all the computer devices and hard drives awaiting disposal. Furthermore, the CCD places the responsibility of disposal into the hands of the accredited computer recycler your company has elected to use. The YBC computer disposal team provides its clients with not just a CCD, but a certificate of disposal and a full array of disposal reports. The reports can be accessed 24/7 online by the client should they ever need to prove they have disposed of their IT hardware legally.

Should you pay to have your company computers recycled?

There are many businesses that will offer to collect and recycle your old corporate computers for free. Regrettably, most of these companies are more akin to second hand computer stores and are focused towards reselling used laptops and computers that were once privately owned. A recent study showed that 70% of second-hand computers for sale on eBay still contain retrievable data & files. Generally speaking, you pay for a commercial recycler of computers, laptops and office IT hardware to ensure your computers are disposed of legally and don’t end up on eBay with your data still on the hard drives. Professional computer disposal businesses ensure your company does not face e-waste & data protection liabilities. Corporate computer recyclers charge a fee to dispose of your company PCs, laptops, servers and office printers because they provide a level of service that is regulated by State, Federal and accredited standards. A corporate computer recycler will have expenses they need to recover to ensure their level of service meets all legal requirements.

Do computer recyclers pay for old office computers, business laptops and company IT hardware?

If you are looking for a computer recycling business to buy your old corporate laptops and retired office PCs you might be in luck. The YBC ITAD and Computer Recycling Program includes a corporate buy-out service that will evaluate your decommissioned computer hardware and offer a good market price for them. To learn more about computer recyclers that buy old, used computer equipment or to sell your used office PCs, company laptops, business tablet computers, work phones and office printers please use the form above.

Places that recycle computers for free?

Many municipalities will recycle privately owned computers for free but they do not offer a collection or data destruction service. If you have corporate computers you are looking to recycle, we would recommend you use the YBC ITAD computer disposal service to pick up and recycle your used business computers, laptops, office printers and other such IT hardware.

Recycle your business's office printers, legally and recycle of your company phones, business tablet computers, office PCs, corporate laptops, desktop computers, servers and IT hardware  for FREE- call the YBC ITAD computer removal and disposal team today at 908 431 0090 or Email YBC ITAD or use the form above CLICK HERE
