IT asset disposition (ITAD) is the business built around disposing of obsolete or unwanted equipment in a safe and ecologically responsible manner.

ITAD vendors specialize in the process of streamlining the disposition of IT assets while minimizing costs and maximizing recouping of losses. Businesses have a heavy replacement cycle of IT equipment. Enterprises with worn-out old equipment are faced regularly with decisions of whether to refurbish or resell, recycle or dispose of business equipment.

ITAD exists in response to a number of considerations in replacing business equipment:

Businesses stand to recoup losses in environmental fees and offset costs of purchasing new equipment through judicious recycling or reselling.  For example, gold can be recycled from motherboards; equipment can be sold to chemical and component specialists or eCommerce sites.
