Have old RAM laying around? Check out some ways to reuse or give it to a good cause.
Recycle Your Old RAM- If you can find no other use for your old RAM, one of the best things you can do is to recycle the old RAM using a reputable recycling service provider. Not all recycling service providers are created equal, as many will only take the parts they need, and throw the rest in a dumpster, which puts the unused parts in a landfill and thus harms the environment. The reputable recycling service providers on the other hand, will repurpose or reuse all of the old RAM parts, which cuts down on waste. The difference between reputable and non-reputable recycling service providers is typically cost, so be sure you’re paying a small fee to use a recycling provider so you can know it’s reputable.
Use Old RAM to Upgrade Your Old Computers- Many tech savvy people have multiple computers, some of which are old and thus serve limited functions. These older computers are perfect candidates for an upgrade, with old RAM being a cost-effective way to achieve this upgrade.
Give your Old Ram to Charity- A great use for old RAM is to give it to someone who will appreciate it far more than you, through one of many technology charities that exist to give used technology items to the less fortunate. These technology items are often shipped overseas, where they have a great impact on emerging markets and third world countries. So if you can’t figure out what to do with your old RAM, choose to make a difference in someone else’s life!
Use Old Ram in Arts and Crafts- Another great way to make use of old RAM is to utilize it in arts and crafts projects. This is not only a great way for you to engage with your kids and others who may not be as technologically savvy, but if you create something of interest you may be able to sell it to the general public via websites like Etsy. So why not get creative and see what you can produce!
