6 Ways to Avoid Illegally Dumping Your Electronics

  • Give your cell phone to someone who needs it. Have an old cell phone you really don’t need? Something I have never understood is why people don’t consider trading cell phones or giving away old ones. As long as the other person and you are with the same carrier it would not be that big of a hassle plus it saves the other person’s time and money for taking your old cell phone when you get a new one and gets rid of your old phone once and for all.
  • Retailer Trade-In! There are various retailers out there that offer you cash for your old electronics such as cell phone providers which take older phones while offering a reduced price on a newer model (and an unnecessary contract renewal) or some video games stores which takes used games from more recent gaming systems and pays you for them in store credit to apply to newer games.
  • Contribute Your Electronics to a Charity. This is one of my favorite approaches to older electronics you have laying around the house. There are many people out there that do not have as much as you or I and donating older electronics you no longer use might make their day a little brighter.
  • Donate Cell Phones for Domestic Abuse Victims. Some charities out there actually take in broken/old cell phones, refurbish them and hand them out to domestic abuse victims just so they have a guaranteed way of dialing 9-1-1 for help when problems arise in their home.
  • Recycle at a Retailer. In case you don’t want store credit at Game stores or a new plan with your carrier, some retailers are now starting to accept ANY old electronics you have no use for to make their mark in a better society as well as to participate in yet another aspect of the life of the products they sell.
  • Recycle with Incycle Electronics  This by far might be the best option for all involved parties. Not only because its an obvious plug for my company. Essentially payment by a recycling center for your e-waste is based off of how much the government is paying them for e-waste at that specific point in time so, obviously, if bargaining is an option doing your homework on what your selling would always be recommended.
