Recycle Telecommunication Equipment
The telecommunication industry is based on transferring voice, data, text, sound and video. The number of electronic and electrical components needed to do this is massive; from transmitters and receivers to power amplifiers, antennas, cables, DSL equipment, satellites, telephones, mobile devices, routers, modems and mainframes.
These devices can all be broken down into commodities that can be recycled.
Whether operational or not, the proper management of these devices is critical to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and guarantee confidential data destruction.
Why Recycle Telecommunication Equipment?
Electronic waste is responsible for 70% of the toxic chemicals such as lead, cadmium and mercury found in landfill. [Greenpeace, The E Waste Problem]. Today’s businesses often use complex computing and telecommunication networks that contain dozens of specific devices that are recyclable at the end of their lives. Telecommunication equipment often incorporates many of the components that computers and other IT equipment contain.
For example the average Base Transceiver Station (BTS) has a large quantity of recyclable material that can be quite complex to disassemble into separate components.
While every piece of equipment is constructed differently from a variety of materials, common commodities that can be pulled from networking equipment include nonferrous metals, aluminum, copper, shredded plastics, mainframes, networking cards, digital boards and more.
If eWaste, such as Telecommunication Equipment is sent to landfill rather than being recycled, poisonous substances can leach from the decomposing waste into the environment. These substances can seep into groundwater, contaminate soil and enter the food chain. If people come into contact with these toxins, there is a high risk that they may develop health problems such as respiratory ailments, reproductive, developmental and nervous system problems.
