Do’s and Don’ts of Computer Disposal for Sonoma County Businesses

Does your business know the latest rules and regulations for computer disposal in Sonoma? Sonoma’s Zero Waste program identifies computer equipment as an e-waste. That means your business must meet certain disposal guidelines which prohibit discarding computers in trash cans or dumpsters.

Why Donate Computers

Pile of Old ComputersExperts agree that most businesses should replace their computer hardware every three to five years. A report by the EPA found that around 150,000 computers are disposed of each day either by trashing them in landfills or recycling them. One option is obviously better than the other and here’s why.

Computer recycling efforts promote the best reuse of computers and other electronic equipment, keeping them out of landfills and often finding them second homes through charitable organizations and community programs. The benefits to donating and recycling are impressive:

  • Recycling one million laptops saves enough energy to run over 3500 U.S. homes per year.
  • Keeping computers out of landfills can create nearly 300 more jobs annually.

It also helps protect people, animals, and the water supply by keeping excessive amounts of lead out of the environment, preventing serious harm to vital body organs and nervous systems.
