What to Do With Old Equipment


What to Do With Old Equipment

When it is time to dispose of old equipment, it can be hard to decide what the best method is to get rid of it.  Is it best to throw everything away, or to keep using some of the equipment in another way, or donating some of the equipment?

Tech Republic recently posted an article about this topic.  One suggestion they have about this topic is donation.  “Charities are always looking for free computing equipment that can run their operations. However, never approach them with an eye toward dumping off equipment that is so antiquated it won’t support Internet or run a current word processor or spreadsheet program. In fact, many charities have wised up to the old “dump it” approach and now set minimum standards for accepting older equipment (e.g., “must at least run a Windows 7 operating system”).”

This is one of many things that you can do to dispose of old equipment.  If you are looking to implement new equipment, contact Marcus Networking at 602.427.5027.
