From Recycled to Refurbished
From Recycled to Refurbished

Our electronic devices are everywhere. If one gets broken and needs to be replaced, this often leads to the owner replacing the electronic device with the newest model. What often happens on a larger scale when upgrades occur is, older electronics get sent into landfills. Companies that specialize in recycling have the right tools and equipment to dismantle electronics without damaging the parts. In these cases, electronics can be refurbished. 


Refurbishing something means to renovate or rebuild it. Electronic devices that are refurbished have damaged components that are removed and replaced with new and improved components. Electronic devices like laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones can all be refurbished quite easily. These items are taken apart and then rebuilt to company standards and they often come with a guarantee suggesting they will continue to perform after the refurbishment effort. 

Electronic Recycling

The average electronic device is not as easy to repair and if the repairs cannot be made the process of electronic recycling will take place. Recycling centers will remove components of electronics that can be added into refurbishment but if an item has been heavily damaged or has components that are outdated, the device is taken apart completely and disposed of in a safe manner. 

Are Refurbished Items as Good as Brand-New?

Refurbished items can be just as good as a brand-new item. Based on information on how a device would perform, an electronics refurbishing expert will replace components and rebuild devices until they perform close to as the device would perform fresh off the manufacturer’s table. You also save money on electronic devices that have been refurbished. The average $600 desktop could go as low as $350 depending on the components that need to be replaced. 

If you’re interested in saving some money on electronics as well as disposing of the electronics that you’ve upgraded, consider refurbished electronics programs and electronics recycling programs to bring down your costs on electronic devices.
