When orginizations upgrade IT and tech equipment, something has to be done with the old equipment. With an increasing global effort to minimize our ecological footprint, E-waste still carries huge ecological impact.

IS ALL EQUIPMENT RESOLD?
No. While some equipment has resale and refurbishment value, most assets have reached the end of its life cycle. Once the your equipment is received and assessed to determine value then your ITAD provider can determine the appropriate secondary sales channel if there is any. Your maximum ROI should be the highest priority for your asset disposition team.
