Why ITAD firms are crucial to protecting data

The e-waste problem has reached crisis levels, according to a report by the World Economic Forum. The numbers tell the story: 50 million tons of e-waste are produced globally each year and, left unchecked, this could more than double to 120 million tons by 2050.

As dire as the situation sounds, ITAD companies are particularly well-positioned to play an important role in keeping used and old computer equipment out of our landfills. Because ITADs are extremely knowledgeable about best practices when it comes to disposing of assets in a safe and environmentally friendly manner, one area where they can provide added value to their customers is by positioning themselves as strategic advisors instead of simply disposers of IT-related hardware.
