Keeping old computers alive
One of the largest issues with waste comes from electrical goods, many are too old to be broken down and recycled, or are quite simply not compatible with newer hardware, this can often mean that it ends up in a landfill site, taking hundreds of years to break down.
So what are the alternatives? Well, if your old computer or laptop still works, even if it’s slow and no good for you, someone else may get some use out of it – try selling it or even giving it away on a local Facebook group, or on a website such as ebay.
If your laptop or computer was working well for your needs, but suddenly stopped working then perhaps all is not lost. There are many businesses out there who specialise in fixing broken computers and laptops, old or new – wherever you are in the world there will either be a local retail store who can do the repairs for you, if not, you can use a remote service, this is often less convenient as you need to pack up your system and send it via courier or postal service to the repair company, which can be both costly and time consuming.
Dropping into a store such as computer repair Dublin, provided by Celtic Repairs in Blanchardstown, Dublin 15 is a fast and convenient way to have your old system repaired, you’ll be able to stay in regular contact with the repair team and also support a local business.
