Electronics & The Environment
About 40 million tons of electronic waste is thrown away each year worldwide. That amounts to about 800 laptops thrown away every second.
On the flipside, the energy saved by recycling a million laptops would be equal to the energy used by 3,600 U.S. homes in an entire year.
There’s plenty of ways to get rid of used and unwanted electronics without adding to a landfill. Devices like laptops can be used and re-used for years before reaching the end of their lifespan.
Once a device has reached its limits, think twice before throwing it away! Compass can help to ensure that your device lives out more of its potential use while adding to your bottom line.
Just make sure to reset your device back to its factory settings or remove the hard drive, then contact Compass to see how our consignment services can get your device to a new user.
You never know — there’s almost definitely somebody out there who could benefit from using a device you no longer want. Consign with us today for some extra cash while helping to cut down on the number of toxic batteries that get thrown into landfills.
