When software’s latest iteration is released, a user purchases the new version and that’s it, there is no residual byproduct, no way to recoup any of the original outlay.
But what about hardware? The question is, when hardware technology needs to be upgraded or withdrawn from use, can any value still be redeemed, and how?
The response is yes—the answer is Asset Renew.

We are happy to arrange a custom full service IT asset disposition package which will include secure data wiping using reputable industry software, and hard drive crushing process.

We will work on your behalf to extract the maximum value for any equipment collected. Even hardware up to 10 years old may still carry residual value.

Our Role In Sustaining The Environment
We know that value doesn’t solely come in the form of dollars. At Asset Renew, we believe the technology that industry casts off, that ends up in our landfills, should be a global concern, therefore, requiring a collaborative response. We are proud to be a part of an ethical and environmentally responsible solution that helps safeguard the future of our planet.
By reusing as much hardware as possible, we aid in reducing the need to manufacture new units, and we recycle the pieces that are no longer viable. Asset Renew offers a sustainable and conscientious way to ensure that yesterday’s technology does NOT end up in today’s landfill.
It bears repeating, we are a 100% landfill free company. If we receive an asset that we can’t repurpose, we direct it to an industry partner who follows strict, regulated, government mandates for the item to be recycled. It’s broken down into its raw components so that it may be reused, supporting the circular economy.
