    Yes, they can. There are even services that will buy your old cameras and recycled the parts, such as Gazelle – there is a link below. They may find a new user for your item (they also take laptops, etc.) or recycle the parts.

    Depending on the brand, some camera companies will take back old cameras, break them down for parts and recycle them. Canon will do this for six dollars (you print out a shipping label from their website), and Sony will do it for free once you bring their old electronics to a Waste Management eCycling drop-off center. Panasonic and Kodak host periodic events for recycling, and also keep you up-to-date on recycling centers: check out the second link below for a state-by-state guide. Other options include Best Buy’s trade-in program, and local recycling events or retail shops with special recycling programs. If the camera still works but is outdated, consider giving it to a kid, or a friend who can still use it.
