Refreshing your copier fleet? Maybe you are like many companies and replacing the large, bulky photocopiers with more cost-effective work group, multi-function printers. The challenge is, what do you do with your old copiers?
All makes and models of photocopiers, and large printers,can be recycled. The challenge is that they are logistically challenging for most organizations. They are bulky and hard to move.
Copiers Are a Challenge to Recycle
While all copiers can be recycled, it is a time-consuming process. Each machine needs to be taken apart by hand and separated into its composite plastics, alloys, and glass.
Plenty of Reasons to Recycle Your Copier
Reasons to recycle computer and printing electronics are bountiful; there are millions of tons of e-waste including old copiers getting trashed each year. We don’t just dispose of your old, unwanted office equipment and copiers. We recycle their metals, plastics, and glass components for waste-free copier, computer, and electronics disposal.
Copiers also hold hard drives that often hold sensitive data that can be exploited. Everything that has been processed on the copier had at one time been stored on the drive. That could be medical information with HIPAA implications for financial data.
