From Reader’s Digest, April 2012, come these suggestions for doing away with old computers or cell phones.
Sometimes you can sell your old items. Consult with gazelle.com, nextworth.com and buymytronics.com to see if your stuff is worth anything. Apple aficionados, on the other hand, may wish to drop by their local Apple store to find out if the item – iPhone, iPad, Mac, or PC – is usable. If so, then an Apple gift card for use at an Apple store or for online purchases will be yours. If the item is not usable, Apple will happily recycle it for you.
