Like many agencies we have a warehouse of old and out of date IT hardware. Instead of being held in storage or landfill disposal, agencies should coordinate internally or if possible, throughout the federal government to collect and dispose of IT hardware using recycling centers that provide a cash value for recovered components. These centers protect and secure hardware, recycle plastic, and resell usable components while providing a percentage of the resell value back to the donater. This would save space, implement green Executive Orders, and provide a cash value back to agencies to use for other needs.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
