Whitepaper: Refurbished Digital Devices – The Future of the Circular Economy
The importance of refurbished devices to the circular and wider economy cannot be overstated. While it’s hard to imagine that a simple choice such as buying a refurbished smartphone has a big impact, our collective behaviour as consumers has influenced and continues to put pressure on legislators to try to force manufacturers to make devices longer lasting and easier to repair.
Presently, while devices can be refurbished, they can only be done, at scale, by professional companies who have the experience, equipment and personnel dedicated to the required task. Due to this, for the foreseeable future, the refurbishment of devices will always be outsourced to such niche companies.
At Wisetek, we have over a decade of experience in IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) processes. This experience is perfectly suited to refurbishing assets for our customers, but also supplying them with refurbished assets too.
By incorporating the circular economy into your ITAD strategy, your existing assets are not only working products which you depend upon, but also ‘resources’ which you can use in the future, and which will subsidise your other devices.
In this Whitepaper, we will discuss:
- The Growing Problem of E-Waste
- Refurbished Devices and the Circular Economy
- IT Asset Disposition and the Circular Economy
