There are many different ways to dispose of your unwanted devices, from selling them online or donating them to charity, to recycling them or tossing them in the trash.
But before you throw your device in the garbage, it’s important to know why you shouldn’t. First and foremost, improperly disposing of old devices can have very negative impacts on the environment. Many of the most common older cellphone models contain a large amount of toxic chemicals, including lead and mercury. When chemicals like these seep into the ground, it can also permeate into our water, resulting in major health risks for the surrounding community. Find the nearest e-waste drop-off locations at Call2Recycle or E-cycling Central.
The other reason you shouldn’t toss your device in the trash is that it most likely still has value! Although many people think their broken or outdated phones can’t be sold or reused, more often than not, they still can.
