Many recycling companies are reporting a drop in PC recycling and an increase in tablet recycling. Smartphones and tablets are continuing to lure people away from buying computers and to invest in a more portable device. These devices are now old enough where newer, faster versions are hitting the market and the first generation is now going to recycling. Some companies and municipalities are required to have a certain weight of electronics being recycled each year. Since these devices weigh significantly less than an average computer, the weights will be down again this year for these companies. However, that is not to say that there is less equipment being recycled. Many of these organizations are now undergoing a reevaluation of their system to accommodate for lighter electronics in the years to come.
