When it comes to recycling laptops, even one makes a big difference — recycling one million laptops saves enough energy to power over 3,500 U.S. homes for an entire year. The easiest way to make sure your computer is properly recycled is to take it to a local retailer with a computer recycling program.
If you bring it elsewhere prior to recycling your computer, here are a few preparation steps you should take:
- Remove all data from your computer to prevent identity theft. You may want to back up important files on an external hard drive.
- Unplug the computer peripherals (keyboard, speakers, etc.) from your desktop or laptop. You can likely recycle these parts as well using the same company where you take the machine, but consider reusing them or donating them since they won’t need a software upgrade to work on a new computer.
- For a laptop, flip it over and see if you can remove the battery. Many laptops use lithium-ion batteries, which require special transportation for recycling, so this is especially important if using a manufacturer mail-back program.
