We live in a world where technology changes daily, if not hourly. In order to prepare our future generations, schools need to adapt as well. School districts should prioritize upgrading to the latest technology in their schools, and have a plan for recycling or remarketing their old equipment to recoup costs.
What Are the Benefits of Using Updated Technology In Your School?
Students can benefit from using the latest technology in the following ways:
- Research and learn about any topic they are interested in
- Communicate with other students and teachers around the world.
- Learn new skills, and improve academic performance
- Remote learning during snow days or sick days
How Often Should Schools Replace Their Computers?
Computers should be replaced every 3-5 years to ensure that the students are using the most up-to-date technology in your school. By replacing the computers on a regular basis, schools can provide the students with the best tools for learning, and help reduce any issues that could delay a student’s progress.

Will Rocycle Buy My School’s Old Equipment?
Yes, if Rocycle determines that your school’s old equipment still has value, Rocycle will make you an offer and remarket it. When a unit is deemed obsolete or not able to be remarketed for any number of reasons, our trained technicians will disassemble and demanufacture the unit and ensure it is properly recycled.
What Parts of a PC Can Be Recycled?
Desktop computers or PCs are one of the most thoroughly recyclable IT assets.
A typical desktop will contain many recyclable items or materials such as:
- Steel case
- Aluminum heat sink
- Hard drive
Is the Data Securely Destroyed?
Hard drive wipes can be performed at your location, or in our facility. Hard drive wipes either use a DoD compliant program or are crushed so the information contained therein can never be accessed again.
The various components are sorted and sent to our downstream partners for further processing then returned to their raw material state of copper, aluminum, steel, etc. which is then reused.
