Sustainability meets savings with tech Buyback Program

JB Hi-Fi Education has collaborated with strategic partners to provide a simple and secure Buyback Program to recover value from your school’s redundant and end-of-life technology assets.

By ethically recycling your technology and giving it a second life, your school will be contributing to a cleaner planet and more sustainable future.

Did you know that 50 million tonnes of e-waste are produced each year? If left unchecked, this could more than double to 120 million tonnes by 2050.1

The Buyback Program supports a circular economy which extends the life of electronic devices, through repair, refurbishment, reuse and recycling. Bringing these principles to your educational institution significantly reduces the contribution of your devices to e-waste and has significant sustainability and institutional benefits.

What are the benefits of our Buyback Program?

  • Support your sustainability goals

E-waste is growing faster than any other type of waste. The Buyback Program can potentially reduce your environmental impact by creating a circular economy – a system where resources are re-used and re-cycled.

  • Reduce your total cost of ownership with JB Hi-Fi Education credit

With today’s market pressures, maximising business investments and minimising your total cost of ownership is key. By extracting residual value from your old or unused assets, you can receive credit on your JB Hi-Fi Education account to offset the cost of your technology upgrades.

  • De-risk your critical information

Data security is paramount for educational institutions. Our Buyback partner uses Blancco Mobile Diagnostics and Erasure software, compliant with ISO 27001. All erasures on your obsolete and end-of-life assets are verified and certified through a tamper-proof audit trail.

  • No additional or hidden costs

The amount quoted for your assets includes device collection, certified secure data erasure and e-waste recycling, with no additional or hidden costs.

At JB Hi-Fi Education, we recognise the environmental impact from strong consumer demand for new technology, tech related services and the need for continuous upgrades to electronics and commercial appliances, and the corporate and social responsibility held by JB Hi-Fi within this space to reduce these environmental impacts.

That is why we are committed to minimising the effect our commercial operations may have on the natural environment and we seek to proactively reduce our waste, energy consumption and emissions across our sales and logistics network.
