IT Asset Management Solutions
Electronic waste is quickly becoming a global crisis. It is now responsible for 5% of municipal solid waste across the world. With ever-changing technology, most items are obsolete within a year leading to an electronic waste stream that increases by 8% each year, and is estimated to increase at the rate infinitely. Emergent Group provides solutions for businesses to take control of their excess IT equipment by providing customized contracts that render the most value to your company. In addition, our environmental management system assures that all of your excess equipment is reused or disposed of in the most environmentally sound way.
BENEFITS of RECYCLING1
CONSERVES NATURAL RESOURCES
Electronic equipment contains many hazardous materials that can be reused instead of depleting the remaining natural resources of our environment.
Recycling of aluminum takes 95% less energy that producing fresh aluminum from raw materials. Recycling of plastics saves up to 70% energy, glass up to 40%, and recycling steel can save up to 60% energy.
Recycling e-waste provides jobs and creates new markets for used and refurbished equipment. In addition, recycling provides income that can be used toward upgrading to newer technology.
