Electronics recycling is the wave of the future. It is a great way of saving money, of making money, and of saving the environment all at the same time. Everyone has an old electronic gadget laying around and collecting dust somewhere. It could be an old printer, or a copy machine. It might be a cell phone or an old TV. Could be an old computer, or an old stereo. Anything with circuit boards is an electronic gadget, even something as simple as a remote control.
However if you are giving away or selling your computer, make sure you erase any sensitive information in it before giving it away. You can always recycle electronic equipments by donating them or by advertise about giving them away on Craigslist. With donations, you can claim tax deductions.
It is simple to recycle and most of us do it. How can we make it easier? For one thing, it helps to know which bottles to recycle. Those of us who recycle know that not all of them are accepted by the centers. To minimize your collections and aggravations, check the bottle. There are codes on the bottles numbered one through seven that indicate whether that particular bottle can be recycled. Numbers one and two are the most common and easiest to recycle. Almost all centers accept them. It also helps to know that most centers do not collect the bottle caps. They, too, are coded with a number. The items that cannot be recycled at your closest facility can sometimes be given to your curbside ava recycling. You can call your city to find out what coded numbers they accept.
Important to note this year is that the location for the dumpsters has changed from the in-town site to the new Public Works Barn located at 345 Lively Street. Lively Street is across from Regions Bank on Buford Highway. The collection time is 8am to 3pm and is free.
Once your cell phone is received, it will be examined to make certain everything is as you described it. You may receive a revised offer based on the condition of your device. The final step: You’ll receive payment for your mobile phone. Depending on the service you use, payment can be by check or through an online payment system such as PayPal. Easy, right?
Once you submit this information, you’ll get your offer immediately. After you accept an offer, some services will even provide a shipping box with a pre-paid, pre-addressed shipping label, mailed to you within a few days. Prior to mailing off your old cellular phone, don’t forget to clear away any personal information, such as your contacts and old messages. You can easily achieve this by restoring your phone to its factory configuration.
There are just a few ways, with minimal effort, you can be on your way to living a little greener. If you are looking for a larger step consider composting with fermentation or worm farms. If you have the financial stability consider investing in a tank-less water heater or solar voltaic panels.
