There are many things to consider when we are about to get rid of our old IT equipment such as privacy, money, the environment, and time. Gadgets lose value quickly because of the continuous release of new devices. Depreciation rates vary from gadget to gadget, but it is better to dispose of them when they are still functional so you can recover some profit. There are hundreds of horror stories that demonstrate that improper disposal of old equipment englobes many risks. Data security is not the only concern because there are also many environmental worries about the spread of toxic materials in rivers, air, and land.
