Here at Sell Your Laptop, we’re able to help you get rid of your old machine through computer recycling. This means that not only do you get a bit of cash for giving us your old PC, but you can also get peace of mind knowing that your piece of technology won’t get buried in landfill.
Why should I recycle a computer?
One of the main reasons why people do computer recycling is to get quick cash for their old machines that no longer work, or they just don’t want anymore.
However, according to the EPA, recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by more than 3,500 US homes in a year.
Not only does this make laptop recycling a fantastic option if you’re looking to support eco-friendlier ways to power homes, but you can also rest assured knowing that you’re doing your bit to support the environment!
Which parts of my laptop can be recycled?
Because a laptop is made of mainly plastic and metal components, almost any aspect of your machine can be reused through laptop recycling. This means that the battery, keyboard, hardware and even the fan can be taken out and re-used to make something new.
Will my data be deleted?
If you’re looking to recycle your laptop or computer, we understand that you may be concerned about protecting the data stored on your machine. Whilst you are able to you wipe the hard drive before proceeding with the recycling process, our laptop recycling experts will permanently destroy any information stored on your computer before recycling it.
We work with the ISO 27001 standards to ensure that your data is kept secure throughout this process and we’re able to provide evidence of permanently destroyed data once your laptop has been recycled by our IT team.
What can be made with a recycled computer?
Computing machines contain metal and plastic, both of which are amongst the most easily-recycled materials, and can be used to create a range of great recycled items such as jewellery boards – and even roulette wheels!
