Are you holding on to really old appliances, outdated electronics, ancient gadgets (think 1999 PalmPilot) or maybe even old useless printer cartridges or even old used car batteries? Well then today is your lucky day! Thanks to a few unique website businesses and in-store programs, you can now recycle all that old clutter and make some extra money in the process. So take a peek into your home's junk drawer, basement and garage, and see what you'd like to get rid of without feeling wasteful or as if you're helping to overfill already overfilled landfills. Here are a few websites to check out:
- iscrapapp.com - find a dealer near you that will pay for old car and truck batteries
- Gazelle.com and YourNew.com - buys old phones, desktop and laptop computers
- Usell.com and BuyMyTronics.com - buys a variety of electronic items
If you prefer talking directly with someone instead of online communications, Apple, RadioShack and Best Buy all have buy-back or recycling programs at local store locations. These stores give discounts or store gift cards for your old stuff. Time to de-clutter and make some summer vacation cha-ching!
