FLEMINGTON, NJ – This Saturday, September 16th is National Clean-Up Day and the local IT experts from eSOZO Computer & Network Services are marking the occasion by reminding local business owners about the importance of recycling technology. eSOZO is issuing an open call to any local businesses who have questions about best practices for recycling old technology and the places in New Jersey that accept electronic waste.
The environmental benefit of recycling electronics properly isn’t hypothetical. In fact:
- Recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by more than 3,500 US homes in a year, and
- For every million cell phones we recycle, 35,000 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered.
While there’s no denying the obvious benefit to responsibly recycling old electronics, many businesses simply don’t know where to start and are afraid of disposing of old equipment improperly. This often results in businesses piling up old computers and tech equipment and tucking it out of sight in storage rooms or office corners. Electronic recycling often gets put on the ‘deal with that later’ list and eSOZO is looking to change that.
“We devote so much of our time and strategic effort into finding the right IT hardware to suit each of our client networks,” says eSOZO CEO, Aaron White. “But the reality is, we haven’t talked enough about where old computers, routers, modems, etc. should go once their usefulness has waned. Since National Clean Up Day is fast approaching, we thought it was the perfect chance to remind local businesses that recycling old electronics doesn’t have to be a headache.”
“Businesses don’t need to be overwhelmed and they certainly don’t need to warehouse old and useless equipment in their office space,” continues White. “We extend our hand to any New Jersey businesses who are looking to get a better hold on effectively recycling old company technologies. Big changes can happen when communities work together, and we’re happy to play a part in reducing the environmental impact of the New Jersey business industry.”
