Are you storing obsolete technology equipment in your attic or basement? If yes, you could be holding onto treasure or space grabbing junk!
It’s so funny to hear that saying that everything comes into vogue again in relationship to technology and it’s hard to believe in our fast-paced world of technology that it would apply but it sometimes does. There are some people who like and miss the sound of the keyboards from the 80’s and they will pay for those keyboards, not many, but they are there if you wait.
There are also people who would like to own the colorful Macintosh’s so if you have that type of technology, pull it out and try to sell it or donate to a theater or local group who put on plays. Let them store it and you will have the knowledge you helped someone out.
My guess is most of the technology you have stored are stored for a reason because it’s obsolete and you cannot use it so, recycle it.
Have your older storage drives, discs, tapes moved onto new technology if professionals can accomplish that for you.
The original faxes seemed to have disappearing ink so if you have very old faxed documents that you will need in the future have them saved onto a different technology before the ink fades. Recycle the used fax paper that you no longer need but check about the shiny coated paper.
Continuously update all the data you have stored on technology as you replace it with new technology that way when you purchase new equipment, you’ll be prepared to recycle it instead of store it, saving you from a later headache.
