As we are packing up to move soon, Ben decided to go through the closet storage in one of our bedrooms. He came downstairs with a box loaded with cable cords, mouses and keyboards. Stuff we’ve had for a long time, but never used. I am glad he is giving this stuff up, but what do I do with it? Our city of Fargo does an electronic recycling even once a year (they take in computers and tv’s). That’s fine and dandy, but we only have computer parts.
I began searching for what to do with electronic waste on Google and I came across a link that gave me the answer. Earthlink gave me several different places, depending upon what you want to recycle. One retail store that sounds promising is Best Buy. If you click on that link it will take you to a website that will help you find out what they take in. It states that most things are recycled free with a few exceptions. Other sites to consider is RadioShack. They also have a trade in option if the electronics you have still has some value. If it doesn’t have value, you can still recycle it through them.
I have a goal to get this done this week to clear the clutter in our home. I will post again later to let you know how it went. Do you have any other references on recycling electronic waste? If so please leave me a comment below. Thank you for visiting!
