Why is Computer Re-Use Beneficial?
The production of a PC requires 48 pounds of toxic chemical, 63 gallons of fossil fuels and 396 gallons of water.
Because so much of the energy used over the life cycle of a computer in manufacturing high-tech components, which are usually destroyed in recycling processes to recover raw materials, the energy savings potential of reselling is some 5-20 times greater than recycling…
At PRS we do more to re-purpose electronics. We reduce the need for new manufacturing of electronics by giving longer life to used equipment. We resort to recycling as our last option, and when recycling we assure that it is done the right way.
