Tips to Trade-in or Recycle Consumer Electronics
If your old personal computer, phone, or gaming hardware is just gathering dust, don’t throw it away! El Paso Disposal reminds its residential customers that electronics don’t belong in the curbside trash and might even be worth some money.
Check for Trade-In Value
While not all consumer electronics have trade-in value, El Paso Disposal suggests customers check trade-in value on the Best Buy website and they might find their electronics still hold some retail value. The website will determine Best Buy’s trade-in value for iPhones and iPads, gaming hardware and games, laptops, smartwatches and many other consumer electronics.
If your device doesn’t have trade-in value, don’t throw it away! Best Buy makes recycling easy and will take many kinds of used electronics for proper disposal and recycling. As a matter of fact, Best Buy is on target to recycle 2 billion pounds of electronics by the end of 2020 and offers several options for safe and convenient electronics recycling.
One convenient option is a recycling kiosk inside the front door of every Best Buy store. Rechargeable batteries, wires, cords, cables and plastic bags can be dropped off at any kiosk effortlessly. Other items can be left at the customer service counter or you may qualify for home pickup. Check their website for more details and call the store nearest to you for their local policies.
