How to Make Money Recycling Your Old Electronics
If you’re the type of consumer that has to buy the latest electronic gadgets before anyone else, you probably have older model phones, laptops and other electronic devices lying around your home gathering dust.
Why not make some extra money by recycling your electronics for cash? Here at Main Metal Recycling, we accept a variety of electronic devices, including old laptops, computer towers and cell phones. There’s no need to remove batteries and certain parts within them, you can leave the dismantling to us.
Most municipalities prohibit disposing of old computers and other electronic gadgets by putting them out with the trash, and rightly so. Old electronic devices contain toxic materials which can be harmful to the environment if discarded in a landfill. What you may not realize is that these electronics also contain precious metals such as gold, silver and palladium that would cost much more to mine than it does to recycle. That’s why we pay you for these items when you recycle electronics with Main Metal.
You could try and donate these items to charity, but even many charities have become picky about what they do and don’t accept and charities won’t pay you a cent for anything you drop off with them. Yes, you are allowed to write the donation off on taxes, but nothing beats cash in your hand.
By bringing your unwanted electronics to Main Metal Recycling, not only do you dispose of your personal electronics responsibly, you can make money doing so.
Sure, you could go to your local municipal recycling center. They’ll dispose of everything in the correct manner, but you won’t make a cent, and you might even get charged for dropping it off. If you have a lot of old gadgets, that could add up to a significant amount of money that you’re simply giving away. Sure, you could go to your local municipal recycling center.
