Day 27: recycling electronics

Soon, the holidays will be here and you may be taking advantage of all the great electronic sales available. 
Our laptop is on it's way out, so I was glad to discover we don't just have to throw it in the garbage. 

Here are some simple ways to recycle your unwanted electronics:

If your computer is less than five years old and in working condition, consider donating it to a nonprofit organization such as the National Cristina Foundation, which refurbishes computers for disadvantaged or disabled individuals.

If your computer -- or another personal electronic device -- is not in working condition, Staples offers an in-store recycling program. Staples will recycle used computers, printers, monitors, and laptops for a $10 fee. Small electronics, computer accessories, such as mice and keyboards, PDAs, rechargeable batteries, and all Dell-branded computers and printers can be recycled at Staples stores for free.

Cell Phones 
Old cell phones, working or broken, can be donated along with chargers to the Wireless Foundation Call to Protect Program, which refurbishes phones for survivors of domestic violence.

GreenPhone will give consumers and businesses cash or instant credit toward another device in exchange for unwanted, intact cell phones.
