Office Technology and Electrical Waste

Posted by

The advancement of technology is an important consideration in the 21st century and one that should certainly not be halted or impeded in any way, and yet the fact is it has sent old cell phones, computers and many other kinds of electronic gadgetry to the dump in record time, and businesses and offices across every industry all over the world have felt this effect as much as, if not more, than everyone else.

But what happens at the office when a computer gives its last error message, or an old cell phone passes its use by date? What happens if the fridge in the staff room breaks down or the telephone network gets a much needed update? Many offices have even been known to have a special room set aside for now obsolete electronics that are no longer any use but which cannot just be thrown out on the scrap often because they contain confidential data and private information on the business and its clients that could cause serious damage if it were to fall into the wrong hands.  Hackers can find information from discarded computers and old cell phones only too easily.

This is why it is so important for companies to find a company that they can trust, such as SellCell in the case of cell phones, who can not only recycle the equipment in an environmentally friendly manner, but can also be trusted to wipe any information on the devices so that it never compromises the integrity of the business.
