It’s great to own smartphones, laptops, televisions and other electronic items to enjoy the numerous benefits they offer, but with this enjoyment comes the responsibility of disposing e-waste appropriately. As computers, tablets and laptops become a necessity for maximizing productivity, enterprises are churning out e-waste by the tons.
"It is estimated that corporations retire more than eleven million computers each year, not counting other devices. At this rate, it is important to address the effects of this waste on the environment if not properly recycled," said David Bernstein, president and CEO of AnythingIT.
It is refreshing to note that Fujitsu (News - Alert) America, the well known provider of communications and solutions, together with AnythingIT, a certified electronic recycler have prevented more than 150,000 pounds of e-cycled electronic waste from reaching landfills.
Responsibly and securely recycling electronic devices can be a challenging task but Fujitsu and AnythingIT have been at it for eight years successfully removing and recycling electronic items from across industry sectors.
Fujitsu, in addition to providing industry leading technology, enables clients to create a seamless transition to upgrade their hardware. Outdated technology and devices that have served their purpose are handed over to AnythingIT for proper disposal.
The company supports its clients not only throughout the entire lifecycle of electronic equipment but also ensures that all de-manufactured materials are recycled in a responsible and environment-friendly way.
“As our customers' rapidly increase adoption of our first-rate technology offerings, we also need to be cognizant of our responsibilities to properly dispose of out-of-date devices," said Kevin Wrenn, senior vice president, PC business, Fujitsu America, Inc.
When e-waste is disposed of by AnythingIT, the company ensures that its recycling processes are in accordance with ISO standards.
