What can I do with my old electronic products that no longer work?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are many organizations that accept donations of used, unwanted electronic products. Various phone companies will ask their customers to send their old cell phones back, for example, if they are purchasing a new phone. The company will then usually refurbish the phones and sell them to others in order to ensure that they’re put to use instead of ending up in a landfill.

    As for other electronics that no longer work, this article (http://mashable.com/2010/04/29/donating-electronics/) has good information on charities that will accept donations of old electronics. You can also consult the EPA website’s section on electronic waste to find tips on where to donate your electronics: http://www.epa.gov/osw/conserve/materials/ecycling/donate.htm

    If all else fails, you can usually donate almost anything to thrift stores. It would be a good idea to call the store ahead of time and ask if they accept electronics that don’t work.

    By donating your old electronics, you will no doubt be helping to reduce the amount of harmful and, unfortunately, omnipresent electronic waste that ends up in landfills.
