There’s a special place in my garage for all my used electronics. Old smartphones, monitors, gadgets, computer peripherals, digital cameras… DVD players… they usually sit in the garage until they’re recycled or donated.
Both of those are much better places for your electronics to end up than a landfill – but what if you could get real Cash for Your Cell Phones and Electronics? Well, that’s what uSell provides.
uSell finds the highest cash offers from top-rated buyers for your cell phones and electronics – and everybody needs extra cash! uSell’s 100% Max Cash Guarantee ensures you get the most cash or they’ll pay the difference.
Just for kicks, I went onto uSell to type in some of my electronics.
For my Motorola Backflip, they could give me $36.
For my Blackberry Curve, I could make $1.
Unfortunately they won’t take my five-year-old Samsung Blackjack, but if there isn’t anyone taking your gadget, you can enter your zip code and find a place to recycle it.
$37 is nothing to shake a stick at; it could help supplement the cost of a new smartphone.
Whatever you decide to do with your old gadgets, I must beg you – please do not throw them in the trash. I go out of my way to recycle old electronics, including printers, phones, monitors and batteries because of the dangers of electronic waste.
Here’s some info from uSell on why you should recycle your electronics:
According to the EPA, recycling turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. Recycling generates a host of financial, environmental, and social returns. Some of these benefits accrue locally as well as globally.
Benefits of Recycling:
- Recycling protects and expands U.S. manufacturing jobs and increases U.S. competitiveness.
- Recycling reduces the need for land fills and incineration.
- Recycling prevents pollution caused by the manufacturing of products from virgin materials.
- Recycling saves energy.
- Recycling decreases emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change.
- Recycling helps sustain the environment for future generations.
I appreciate any business that supports a sustainable earth. If there’s one that could earn you some extra cash, why not give it a shot?
