Computer PCB Recycling – All You Need To KnowPosted on August 30, 2013
Printed Circuit Boards, also known as PCBs, are pieces of computer hardware that are connected to the electrical pathways of the different electrical components, and are found on everything from motherboards and RAM to hard drives and expansion cards.
Most businesses are usually not aware of the right ways to dispose of their old and outdated computers, thereby harming the environment and also losing out on potential revenue. By selling computer PCBs at competitive prices to us, you can get rid of your old hardware and also make some money off the valuable and salvageable components.
Why is computer PCB recycling so popular?
Printed circuit boards contain precious metals, particularly gold, a good conductor of electricity. In addition, the boards also contain other metals, such as copper, tin and lead. As more computers are ending up in landfills, there is a growing need to recycle most of these old computer components.
Of all the components, printed circuit boards offer wonderful recycling opportunities. The boards can be recycled to extract gold, silver, copper, nickel and other metals that can be re-used or refined.
How does computer PCB recycling work?
We here at AWA Refiners use the latest technology to strip the boards from their metallic components. This stripping operation is carried out in a controlled environment; we use extraction methods that are not hazardous to the workers or the environment, making them safe and environment-friendly.
