The average household has many different electronics each doing its own thing. From a laptop, to a smart phone, to a TV and a printer, it’s amazing how many electronics we use on a day-to-day basis! But with many other things as the years go on, you may be looking to upgrade your electronics. When you do, what do you do with your old electronics? There are actually quite a few options available. Interested in learning more? Read below!
Before considering any of these options, it’s a good idea to wipe all personal information clean. To do so, contact the manufacturer or search online for a tutorial on how to wipe your electronic clean.
If you’re looking to make a little extra money, consider selling your old electronics. Many different stores offer a buy-back program, which is a great option if you are looking to sell your electronics as soon as possible. Additionally, there are many different online sites where you can safely sell your electronics.
Another option for getting rid of old electronics is to donate them to a charity. Many different charities seek electronics to give to children in hospitals, schools, military personnel and other local non-profits.
Recycling your old electronics is a great alternative to throwing them away. Electronics contain lead, mercury and cadmium, which are toxic to the environment. Electronics also contain materials that can be reused, such as plastics, glass and metal.
If your electronic still has life left in it, and you know a family member or friend who can use it in the future, consider storing your electronic. This is also a good option if the electronic is rare, antique or was passed down by a loved one.
