How to recycle your phone, PC and other tech gear

By Preston Gralla, Computerworld |  Hardware, smartphones, tablets

This site boasts a wide range of what you can recycle, including cell phones, laptops, digital music players, gaming systems, GPS units, cameras, e-readers and more. However, it won't accept desktop computers or monitors.

Select the type of electronics you want to recycle and it takes you to a questionnaire that will help you describe it. You may have to know a bit about the specs of the product you want to recycle -- for example, if you want to send a laptop, you'll need to know the processor type and speed. Apart from that, though, it's straightforward to use. You get a pre-paid label for sending it in.

WeRecycle

This e-Stewards-certified site helps you recycle your electronics in several different ways. You can search for local recycling services near you by doing a search by ZIP code. If you live in New York State, you can also recycle your devices via the site for free. Pack them all up in a cardboard box, and then get a free FedEx shipping label from a link on the site.
