IT ASSET DISPOSITION
IT asset disposition (ITAD) focuses on the reusing, recycling, repurposing, repairing, or disposing of unwanted IT equipment in a safe and environmentally responsible way.
The objective of ITAD is to minimise or even eliminate sending electronic waste, or e-waste, to landfill, helping keep waste such as plastics and heavy metals out of the environment.
Although your organisation may have a systematic replacement cycle for electronic equipment, the decision of whether to refurbish, resell, recycle, or dispose of your business equipment has to made, and the overhead of doing so still has to be addressed.
At Sumo Technologies we have carried out this process in our service centre for decades; harvesting the serviceable components of devices that cannot be repaired and using these to repair others. We even have a name for this 2-4-1; which in short is taking two devices of the same model and specification and making one device out of it.
