The EPA website gives a list of stores that offer recycling services of electronic devices, such as cell phones, iPods, iPads, tablets, computers, Macs, PCs, and TVs. However, it does not tell you that if you live near a mall with a Microsoft store, you can walk in any time and hand them your old PC and they take care of recycling it for you. Although Microsoft does not give you any monetary consideration, you don’t have to fill out any forms; so, it’s quick and easy.
Apple offers a recycling program through their website, apple.com/recycling; a free prepaid mailing box will be sent to you for qualifying items including PCs; and if they have any reasonable value, an apple gift card will be mailed to you. Apple mall stores do not accept items for recycling. However, old working iPods will be accepted in the mall store and you will be given an immediate ten percent discount toward a new iPod. Details are on the Apple.com/recycling website.
Wherever you decide to recycle your old electronic device, you will feel good that you are doing something good for your home, planet Earth! Everyday should be Earth Day!
