Why Refurbished Electronics are a Good Idea for Everyone

Technology has changed the way we live and do business, but now that we’re all dependent on electronics, progress comes at a steep price. As your old computers break or become obsolete, you can’t always afford to invest in a brand new replacement. Fortunately for you, we collect working computers and other electronics through our electronics recycling program. When you buy refurbished electronics from Tech Dump, you do all of the following things.

Save money

This one’s a no-brainer. Simply opening the packaging will lower a computer’s resale value, so when you buy a very gently used electronic, you’re benefiting from someone else’s investment. Our reformatted, refurbished electronics are much more affordable than unopened originals, but many of them are just as powerful.

Protect the environment

Manufacturing, packaging and transporting electronics is a very energy-intensive process. When you skip the electronics stores and buy a product that’s already in circulation, you spare the planet from unnecessary greenhouse gases and reduce the demand for synthetic, non-biodegradable materials.

Electronic waste is an environmental nightmare, but it’s also an unnecessary waste, because many old computers have parts that still work in newer models. When you take advantage of that, it’s a win-win for you and the planet!

Create jobs

We’re proud that our electronics recycling program helps protect the planet’s future, but our employees‘ futures matter just as much. In fact, we qualify as a nonprofit organization because of our efforts to employ and train people who would otherwise struggle to find work. We’re not just giving electronics a second chance; we’re also giving hard-working adults a second chance to succeed in life.

Get top brands

Don’t underestimate the value of a reused computer. Refurbished doesn’t mean second-best, so we carry all the top technology brands. As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, we offer huge savings on computers, tablets, and more. That means discounts for you, the customer, but it also proves we know our way around a computer.

Know what to expect

We have hundreds of desktop and laptop computers, and full transparency is part of the deal. We give each item a letter grade that tells you its overall condition, and we also provide detailed information about its features, imperfections, operating system and any recent upgrades. You’ll know exactly what to expect.  Support electronics recycling and buy one of our refurbished computers today.
