School Electronics Recycling Programs

Recent headlines have drawn unwanted attention to School Electronics Recycling issues.  Let’s face it, school districts do not have the time to deal with many things that need to be dealt with among the chaos of a school day.  Teachers and Administrators are busy shaping the lives of our children, dealing with everything that happens in the course of a day, and juggling budget constraints.  So things that may not seem important at the time get moved to tomorrow or shoved in a room or a closet to be dealt with later.  Amidst the recent importance of using R2 certified electronic recyclers to protect student and faculty information and ensuring that unwanted electronic assets are not land filled or exported to developing countries.

Today, schools are compelled to take advantage of a wealth of new classroom technologies to be competitive and current such as interactive whiteboards, digital cameras, cell phones, projectors, iPads and more. As new technology and software constantly enters schools yesterday’s cutting edge devices are now obsolete.  This leaves important considerations for what to do with the old equipment, how to safeguard data and not impact the district budget. So what’s the solution?
