Business Development: Everything You Need to Know

If you are interested in business development, you are in the right place. My name is Adam and I live in Brisbane, Australia. Although I don't own a business, I am very interested in how businesses operate and the steps they can take to improve their performance. I love the fact that by making a few changes to a business, the owner can drastically increase their profits. I have spent the last 8 months learning all I can about business development. I have visited several different types of small business in my local area and spoken with the staff in order to gain a deeper insight.

2 Ways to Make a Profit From E-Waste

In the past few decades, a massive amount of electronic waste (e-waste) has been produced. The proliferation of cell phones, laptops, monitors, printers, scanners, modems, keyboards, digital cameras, and other accessories means that there are now many abandoned electrical appliances which are either obsolete or damaged. The vast majority of waste contains hazardous metals such as mercury or lithium, which means they should not be placed in a landfill with other general waste.

However, many electrical gadgets also contain valuable metals such as gold which is used to make wiring. If you want to make a little bit of extra money, selling e-waste to a recycling centre is one way of doing so. Below is a guide to how you can increase your earnings. 

Offer to collect e-waste

The primary reason more people do not sell their e-waste to a recycling centre is that this would involve them spending time collecting the things together and transporting them to the nearest recycling centre. You can increase your earnings by advertising yourself as someone who is willing to visit people's home and workplaces to collect their e-waste free of charge. Place flyers in local shops, telephone boxes and electronics stores with your telephone number on advertising the service. Once you have collected a load of e-waste, you can transport it to the local recycling centre and cash it in.

Sell appliances or remove components from the e-waste

If you want to maximise your profits, you should consider examining the e-waste before you sell it to a recycling centre. If there are any electronic appliances which are still in working order, you may want to consider selling them on yourself using classified ads. If the item does not work, you should consider if you can make more money by stripping down parts and selling them on individually compared to what you will be offered at the recycling centre. If you remove any parts from an electronic device and then sell it to a recycling centre, you should make sure they are aware that parts of the device have been removed, as this could affect the price they offer you for the e-waste.

If you are interested in finding out more about this subject or how you can get involved in e-waste recycling, you should get in touch with your local e-waste recycling unit today. The staff there will be happy to offer you further help and advice.
