Why is computer recycling cost effective?

Computer recycling is cost effective in the long and short run because, as with all recycling, it conserves resources which are limited or cost a lot to bring into usable stage and at the last, into the production line. Human and natural resources are used to make each and every part of a computer, whether a laptop or big home computer. The construction of a new computer from all new metals, minerals, plastics, labor and not to mention the transportation, costs a lot and the manufacturer, true to the nature of the business, passes on the cost to the end consumer with taxes and profit on top.

Why is Computer recycling great for the environment?

Since the invention of the computer, millions of it have been manufactured and eventually ended up in landfills and dumpsites before efforts and practices to recycle them became common. These machines are not built to last long. Their very nature, they become obsolete in a few years with new versions of both the hardware and software constantly coming out of the companies that made them. Old computers, with their many parts which are either hazardous or made from non-renewable sources end up in our landfills.

Computer recycling is great for the environment as it prevents old computers from being littered everywhere. If a roomful of discarded old computers is an eyesore, then think how much more a whole city of it is! Discarded computers pose as health hazards as well as eating space unnecessarily (imagine millions of old bulky computers stacked up in great piles or strewn about!), space which could be used for life sustaining purposes.

When did Computer recycling start?

Computer recycling has been around ever since the invention of the first programmable computer in the 1930s and thereafter. Expensive parts and construction made recycling necessary. However, recycling of mass produced computers only became popular in the 80s after consumer electronics including computers, cameras and the like started becoming popular from the 1970s.

Computer recycling caught on subsequently as concerns about these electronics posing health and environmental hazards became widespread
