What are the differences between ITAD (IT Asset Disposal) and E-waste? 7

We usually use the words ITAD and E-waste to refer to IT asset disposal. However, ITAD and E-waste have got differences in many aspects:

1.Recycle, Reuse, Destruction

There comes a time when people need to upgrade their IT equipment, up to 90% of unused IT equipment such as old computers, smartphones, servers, and hard disks become e-waste that needs to be destroyed. Some parts could be brought back to recycle, whereas some need a proper destruction technique. E-waste focuses on recycling and discarding the shatters, while ITAD focuses on appropriate management and being environmentally friendly, or in some cases, the computer can be reused by just doing the data destruction.

2. Convenience

E-waste recycling needs a lot of space. Moving equipment to the factory is not only time-wasting and costly, but it also increases difficulties to an asset owner. ITAD’s destruction process can serve the purpose of on-site and off-site destruction with different used techniques.

3.) Value recovery of the equipment

IT asset disposal of each equipment costs differently. While E-waste is considered a scrap that needs to be destroyed or needs to bring some parts to recycle, ITAD process could recover an asset value by reusing the equipment or selling it in a cheaper price.

4.) Data Security

In the present time, the laws place more importance on data in the social media world. If we send the equipment to the E-waste category to disassemble and destroy, we won’t know exactly whether the information inside the equipment will completely disappear or not.

5.) Environmentally friendly

An e-waste recycling plant has many uncontrollable variables such as sound, cleanliness, power, or even used resources. On the other hand, the procedures of ITAD could reduce the problem of those variables, and have management standard. Moreover, ITAD process is convenient and fast.

IT equipment and E-waste management is a matter of serious concern.

Selecting the correct method will not only reduce environmental problems that may arise, but it can also extend the lifespan and value of the equipment further.

Thailand has also begun to raise awareness of electronic asset management through the ITAD process.
