The scoop: Electronics produce millions of material waste every year. Here are some simple ways to recycle or repurpose your old gear.
- You can dispose of old batteries, computers, tvs, and phones at major retailers like Home Depot, Best Buy, Lowe's and Staples. Use a search engine to find one near you.
- Make sure your device is shot before recycling it - you may be able to donate it, sell it online, or trade it in for a new device.
- Always back-up old files and do a factory reset before selling, recycling or donating a device.
Bottom line: Being responsible with e-waste is an easy way to dampen your footprint and help under-served communities at the same time.
