The Environmental Impact of Barcode Scanners: Make Sustainable Choices

The Hidden Costs of New Barcode Scanners

When businesses invest in new barcode scanners, they often overlook the environmental impact. Manufacturing new devices consumes a lot of resources. It involves extracting raw materials, using energy, and producing waste. Every new device contributes to environmental degradation.

Additionally, disposing of scanners with minimal damage, such as one with a broken screen, generates significant waste. The device’s battery, plastic casing, and electronic components all contribute to pollution. Batteries, if not properly disposed of, can leak harmful chemicals into the soil and water. The plastic parts can take hundreds of years to decompose, and the electronic waste often ends up in landfills, releasing toxic substances.

By choosing to repair your barcode scanners instead of buying new ones, you can help reduce this impact. Repairing extends the life of your device and decreases the demand for new products. This simple choice can make a significant difference.


The Benefits of Refurbished Devices

Another sustainable option is purchasing refurbished barcode scanners. At Mobile Computer Repair, we offer A-grade refurbished devices from top brands like Motorola, Zebra, Honeywell, and Symbol. These devices are fully serviced and tested, ensuring they work like new. We check every aspect, including the battery, screens, and keyboards.

Refurbished devices come with a six-month warranty, covering manufacturer component failures. They are a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to new devices. Opting for refurbished means less e-waste and a smaller carbon footprint.


The Value of Annual Maintenance

Regular maintenance is key to extending the lifespan of your devices. Our annual maintenance cover provides an excellent solution. With this service, you can have your barcode scanners, handheld terminals, and PDAs repaired throughout the year. This proactive approach ensures your devices last as long as possible, reducing the need for replacements.

Annual maintenance not only saves you money but also supports sustainable business practices. It helps prevent unnecessary waste and ensures your equipment remains reliable and efficient.
