    Case Study: Making A Positive Impact on the Planet with Your Unused Electronics – A MUST READ

    We at Adams Cable Equipment truly believe that a circular economy, powered by a strong reuse program, is the best way to minimize a company’s carbon footprint to protect people and our planet. Many people talk a big game … we LIVE it.

    For the last 22+ years, ACE – Adams Cable Equipment has pioneered and been a leader in the industry by refurbishing and reselling legacy cable modems and digital set-tops. Along the way, we have branched out into selling laptops, desktops, servers, HDD’s, memory, monitors and headend equipment; we even became R2 certified, and we now have one of the most technologically advanced operations in North America for shredding small electronics.

    Even with having an elite recycling operation, our love and passion still comes from refurbishing and reselling companies’ old electronics. Below you will find a few examples of how we have positively impacted the global economy and environment by reselling legacy cable modems and digital set-top boxes. Just think, what could happen to the environment if everyone resold all old electronics? If manufacturers would change their ways about the “Right to repair,” make universal power cords/supplies, stop making devices with expiring operating systems like Chromebooks, etc. We should not only expect this; we should DEMAND this.

    Modems and Set Tops REFURBISHED AND RESOLD the last 22 years

    Sustainability Results – Green House Gas Emission Savings:

    • 2,992,000,000 kg of Carbon Emission (CE) saved from polluting the planet

    Equivalencies to Everyday Activities:

    • Enough electricity was saved to power 1,211,516 US Household
    • Eliminated enough Carbon Emissions to equate removing 2,147,195 passenger cars from the road
    • Solid waste generated by 26,753 household
    • Eliminated 11,497,671 metric tons of air emissions

    We broke it down by how much carbon footprint we saved per year as well:

    Yearly average of REFURBISHED AND RESOLD

    Sustainability Results:

    • 136,000,000 kg of CE

    Equivalencies:

    • Electricity to power 55,069 US Household in a year
    • Removing 97,600 passenger cars from the road per year
    • Solid waste generated by 1,216 household in a year
    • 522,622 metric tons of air emissions


    Check out the difference if we would have shredded the modems and set tops versus reselling them. This should be a massive eye-opener to your leadership team for reselling versus shredding!

    Sustainability Results:

    • 5,890,000 kg of CE

    Equivalencies to Everyday Activities:

    • Enough electricity was saved to power 1,738 US Household in a year

    • Eliminated 16.499 metric tons of air emissions

    It is clear and evident that reselling old legacy equipment if possible is the best route for reducing our world’s carbon footprint. If your company has Sustainability Initiatives as an objective for 2022, or you are looking for ways to reduce your carbon footprint, call us. We CAN HELP!
