Inside the AWS Lab Where Retired Data Center Hardware Gets a Second Chance | Amazon Web Services

To extend the useful life of data center hardware, Amazon Web Services (AWS) sends all functional, sanitized, retired server racks and components to its reverse logistics hubs. There, server racks are securely demanufactured and components are repaired and tested for reuse in our data centers.

The program supports AWS’s path to reaching net-zero carbon by 2040, as part of The Climate Pledge. AWS is embracing three circular economy principles for our server racks by designing for reusability, keeping equipment operating efficiently, and recovering value from securely decommissioned equipment through reuse, repair, and recycling. This allows AWS to keep resources at their highest value for as long as possible, avoiding waste generation from our global operations and reducing the use of raw materials and carbon emissions across our supply chain.
