Today’s Solutions: November 26, 2021

Do you have a digital camera? Do you still use it, or does it sit quietly in a desk drawer, overshadowed by your iPhone’s camera lens? With the rate at which technology advances these days, chances are we all have old gadgets that are now obsolete or that we just don’t use anymore. But before you throw old tech into the trash (don’t do it!), check out the following tips for how to properly dispose of old electronics.

The first question to ask yourself is: Is this item still usable? If it is, consider giving it someone who can still genuinely enjoy it. Perhaps you can donate it to a charity or sell it online on a website like Facebook and make a couple of extra bucks.

If the device is no longer usable, then it’s time to recycle that e-waste. Your local Best Buy or Staples both have free electronic recycling programs at all of their US stores. Should you not have one of these in your area, many municipalities also offer occasional electronic recycling; and the recycling experts at TerraCycle offer some options as well.
