Where to Recycle Electronics
In most states, it is illegal to dispose of electronics using your regular trash or recycling services. Electronics contain toxic chemicals that require specialized disposal methods and should not be crushed or burned in landfills with typical garbage. When you recycle electronics you help keep harmful substances out of landfills and prevent dangerous emissions from being released into the environment.
There are three main options for recycling your electronic devices. You can donate working electronics to those in need, let a tech company recycle your devices, or use a professional recycling service.
Donate to Charity
Many charities, non-profits, and other organizations accept functional or repairable electronics for donation. The devices are then used by the organization or fixed and sold to earn money. Donations to libraries, schools, and non-profits can be deducted as a tax break on your tax return.
A simple internet search will provide you with many organizations that accept electronic donations. You can select from many groups that would benefit from your donations like underprivileged communities, military charities, children’s organizations, emergency services, and more.
Use a Tech Company
Many tech companies and electronic retailers offer electronic recycling programs that give you the option to return your devices to the company you purchased them from. Some will offer incentives like trade-in value or credit toward future purchases.
Companies like Apple, Best Buy, Amazon, and Office Depot have electronic recycling programs. Check with the brand or retailer of your device for more details on specific programs and benefits.
