Waste Free Feb – Day 5 – Recycling Electronic Items & Media

We all have old phones, mp3 players and cables in the back of a drawer.

Instead of sending these to landfill, see if you can trade them in at CEX for credit/cash. You can trade in all sorts of items such as:

  • Mobile Phones
  • Consoles
  • Handheld Consoles
  • Accessories for consoles
  • Game Discs
  • Cameras
  • Sat Navs
  • Memory Cards
  • DVDs
  • Laptops
  • Tablets

If you can’t get any money for these items you can recycle them at your local household recycling centre.

When you go to change the cartridge in your printer, make sure you recycle the used cartridge at your household recycling centre or find a charity that raises funds by recycling these.

See if you can send Music Magpie your unwanted CD’s for a few pounds, if not donate to your local charity shop or take to your household recycling centre.

Some charity shops accept older working TVs and electronics and these can also be taken to your local household recycling centre.
