If you happen to have old desktops, cell phones, flat panel monitors or laptops, you can now recycle them, and possibly even get paid for doing so. This website I found called My Boneyard is a licensed electronics recycler and markets itself as “The Simple, Safe and Smart Way To Recycle Electronics”.
They not only pay for shipping with prepaid shipping labels, but they also guarantee the removal of personal information from your electronics. I put in my old Treo and they were offering $30 for it, and the list of phones they have to choose from is very long. Recycling this stuff and getting paid to do so is way better than letting it sit in a landfill somewhere contaminating the groundwater, don’t you think?
Anyway, if you have some e-waste sitting around the house, you might want to check them out and see if you can get anything for it. And even if you can’t, you can at least have a place to safely recycle it, postage paid.
