Computer Equipment Retailers Within the Waste Recycling Industry

Local Retailers

It may be interesting for the entrepreneur to form partnerships with computer equipment retailers to collect used equipment. Indeed, these stores can suggest that their clients should return their former equipment which could then be dispatched to the recycling centre to be processed. The entrepreneur will have to operate a profit-sharing scheme with these partners. It is also possible to offer a discount or a credit note to the clients returning used equipment. The partner store will have to have enough space to temporarily store the equipment received.

Recycling Industry

Within the waste recycling industry, outsourcing is common practice. Major recycling companies outsource collecting and waste processing activities to small firms. Thus, a large volume processed by small recycling companies can come from larger recycling companies. Therefore the entrepreneur may try to get in touch with other recycling companies to find equipment fit for refurbishment.
