4 Excellent Reasons to Recycle Your Old Mobile Devices

Every year millions of new cell phones and tablets are purchased in the U.S.; there are also millions of mobile devices that are set aside. Many are shoved into desk drawers, closets and closets, while too many others find their way into landfills. If you have old iPods, iPads or smartphones collecting in your home, now is the time to recycle them. Here are four excellent reasons to recycle all your electronic devices.

  1. Be green. Recycling is the best way to reuse valuable materials instead of mining for new ones. Mobile devices contain gold, silver, plastic and other materials that can be recycled and reused, saving energy needed to mine or manufacture new materials.
  2. Toxic waste. Electronics emit toxins into the soil when they end up in landfills. They are not bio-degradable and add to the mountain of waste in our environment.
  3. De-clutter your home. Why are you still holding on to that first-generation iPhone or iPad? Make room in your home and storage spots by recycling all those old devices that you will never use again.
  4. Money in your wallet. Last, but not least, get some cash for those old mobile devices. There are quality mobile device repair chains that offer money for your old cell phones, tablets and even iPods. Why recycle them for free when you can get a little money back from your investment into new technology?

It is time to gather up all those mobile devices that are collecting dust and trade them in for a little extra cash for your wallet. Recycling is good for the environment and a great way to get money for your next mobile device purchase.
