Newtech Recycling Rasmus Quote

Our principal analyst, Daniel W. Rasmus was quoted in an April 6 post at Newtech Recycling.

We spoke to Daniel W. Rasmus with Serious Insights who told us “If they still work but don’t have resale value, I will donate them toThe Boys and Girls Club.” This is just an example of one charity that will accept old electronics but there are a ton more who can utilize your old tech products.

Beyond that quote, Rasmus also shares the following advice about recycling:

  • If they still work and have value, I will likely sell them back. I find Best Buy the easiest choice, though Amazon is also an alternative I have used for their gadgets (like older Kindles).
  • If they still work but don’t have resale value, I will donate them to, for instance, The Boys and Girls Club associated with my local Value Village.
  • If they don’t work, I still take them to Best Buy as they take back most electronics recycling at no fee. There may be a fee for some items like televisions  Check the Best Buy policy.
  • Community recycling. Batteries and electronics are also accepted at community recycling events. Read the instructions carefully about what the event will take. Don’t take an old computer to a paint recycling event.
