After all the new gizmo’s and gadgets are set up post-Christmas, what do you do with all your old tech?
There are several options for what to do with old technology after Christmas:
Donate it: You can donate old technology to a charitable organization or a non-profit that accepts electronic donations. This can help provide access to technology for those who may not otherwise have it. (We take donations and refurbish them for customers in need such as students)
Sell it: If the old technology is still in good working condition, you can try selling it online or through a local resale shop. (although we do not tend to buy computers or laptops you can use shops in Sudbury town)
Recycle it: If the old technology is no longer usable, it is important to recycle it properly. Many electronics contain hazardous materials that can be harmful to the environment if disposed of improperly. You can find local e-waste recycling facilities in your area through websites like earth911.com or call2recycle.org.
Upcycle it: If you’re feeling creative, you could try upcycling old technology into a new, helpful item. For example, you could turn an old laptop into a digital photo frame or an old smartphone into a security camera.
Regardless of what you choose to do with your old technology, it is essential to ensure that any personal data is securely erased before disposing of or giving away the device.(We charge £30 for our secure erasure process on old computers, laptops and harddrives)
