Most people don’t realise that laptop recycling is also a critical part of the e-waste puzzle. Generally, when people think of e-waste they probably think of desktop computers or monitors. However, as the percentage of people using laptops increases, laptop recycling will also become increasingly important. At Hoxton we also manually dismantle laptops down to the various commodities for recycling as well.
Another key element of the laptop recycle or computer parts recycle circle is re-use. The first part of any recycling scheme should certainly be to find a reuse or repurpose for the recycled parts. If this is not possible then we can therefor move onto dismantling and recycling the commodities. At Hoxton we work with the recycling hierarchy to first of all find the best way to recycle computers.
