Data centers are going through a transformation. Traditionally, they used large amounts of electricity to power their servers continuously. But now many are switching over to energy use that’s becoming more efficient; with only 8% projected to be powered by green technology by 2023, many other centers are expected to follow suit over the course of this year.
With data centers continuously upgrading to more advanced technology, it is becoming increasingly important to recycle older electronics within them.
Recycling Electronics with Care
Upgrading outdated technology in a data center is essential. Not only will upgrading new equipment necessitate decommissioning and proper disposal of components found within electronics, but security must also be taken into consideration within the data center.
By working with an experienced electronics recycling company, you can guarantee that all data from outdated server technology has been securely erased. Most electronic waste facilities possess shredders for hard drives as well as tools that can completely delete all information stored on board.
Reuse and refurbishing electronics is another service many E waste providers can provide. Many components in data center electronics can be removed and then refurbished for future use, leading to other electronics being resold back onto the market or being refurbished again for another purpose.
Recycling equipment from a data center has become an increasingly important legal requirement. E waste has been identified as an externally damaging environmental factor, so adhering to the law and safely eliminating E waste is the best course of action.
