Here are a few electronic recycling tips. Old gadgets usually end up in your closet or your garage and stay there for years! You should donate or recycle your old PCs, TVs and phones to groups that will fix them, clean them, and put them back into use. But when there are electronics that even charities won’t accept, you should not just throw old electronics away. E-waste is potentially dangerous because it can contain toxic metals and chemicals that are fine while the device is in use but would become hazardous in a landfill. e-Stewards http://e-stewards.org/data/list-recyclers/ has a list of locations that are guaranteed to make sure your old stuff is recycled safely and in a socially responsible manner. Just like Captain Planet, they have a mission to create a toxic-free future and are campaigning for everyone’s right to a clean environment. In the US, Best Buy has a retail recycling program, but there may be a nominal fee such as $25 to take an old TV. Office Depot has a Tech Recycling Service where you buy a recycling box and put as many devices in there for a flat rate in the range of $5 to $15.
