Small Electronics and Battery Recycling Made Easy

I love the fact that gadget recycling is getting a whole lot easier. Last week I talked about the nifty Cell Phones for Soldiers bags that are now being included with Amazon orders. With these pre-paid bags, you can ship off your old phone to Recellular, a company that pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each donated phone. The U.S. Postal Service is also jumping on board with their new pilot program called Mail Back. Mail Back allows customers to recycle small electronics and inkjet cartridges by mailing them free of charge.
So far, there are 1,500 post offices across the U.S., which have free pre-paid envelopes for you to place your ink cartridges, digital cameras, or cell phones in. Electronics are then sent to a company called Clover Technologies Group that recycles, remanufactures and remarkets gadgets and has a zero waste to landfill policy. And what about batteries? According to Eco Chick, if you head on over to Call2Recycle, you can enter your location info to find a collection site closest to you!
