Technological advancements seem to be happening at the speed of light, and in a lot of instances, just as one is getting comfortable with a newly purchased device, there would seem to be an upgrade already in the market or scheduled to be released. The advancements and upgrades are however peculiar – not only do devices (hardware) need to be compatible with an operating system (software), some other newer technological issues always serve as the selling point for the newer model. This gives rise to the need to dispose of old versions to obtain the new. There is, however, another angle that involves the amount of waste generated by the information technology industry across the world, as a result of the fast pace of upgrades and updates that renders devices obsolete within a short space of time. The onus thus falls on humans to ensure that the planet is safe and healthy, and recycling old devices through appropriate channels is a major way to contribute to a healthy environment. By ensuring that the old devices are sent to the appropriate recycling channels, the different parts can be repurposed, reducing the number of wastes that will go into landfills. Before you trade in your old devices, it is important first to back up your data, as it might not be retrievable if lost. Thereafter, one has to sanitize the device to ensure that all information about the user is removed. Performing a hard reset is the best bet for smartphones and tablets, while computers might require the disc to be wiped. Other forms of devices also have the best ways to clean the memories before discarding them.
