I’ve written in the past about how to dispose of old cell phones, TVs, and other electronics. A recent post on ChristianPF.com highlighted a program I hadn’t heard of before called Flipswap, which enables you to exchange an old cell phone or iPod for an Amazon.com gift card. Devices received by the company are either repaired and resold or recycled.
Thousands of cell phones end up in landfills every day. Far better to recycle them. Even better, since many discarded devices are still in working order, simply hang on to your electronic gear longer. It’ll be better for the planet and your pocketbook.
