If you're looking to do as little harm to our environment as possible here are 3 Ways to Properly Dispose of Old Electronics:
- www.Gazelle.com buys old cell phones, digital cameras, laptops. camcorders, and other electronics. After confirming the status and value of your item, you'll get a check, PayPal payment, or Gift Card. An iPhone 3G 8 Gigabyte version fetched $103, recently!
- www.Gettington.com allows you to price out what you'll get before you sell by answering a few questions about your item (and the accessories you have for it). You can sell anything from iPhones, iPods, to software, and eBook Readers!
- www.Flipswap.com gives you the ability to sell your old phone for cash (or a donation to a charity of your choosing) -- you can even trade it in for credit at a store that sells cell phones! At the high end, Flipswap pays out an average of $160 for old BlackBerrys and $220 for iPhones.
Remember, most electronics have some form of toxic chemicals in them, and even if you don't sell them, or donate them -- you should dispose of them properly (BestBuy has a great recycle program, be sure to check it out!)
