A couple of weeks ago I hauled a carload of old tech products to an electronics recycling event. I paid $10 to get rid of two old desktop computers, a non-working Apple TV, a couple of cell phones, a network-attached storage NAS drive, two ancient iPods, and a photo printer. At the time, I considered the money well-spent, since I created fresh space in closets and muted my partner’s complaints about the mountain of gadgets I have amassed.
Now I’m not so sure. That’s because I just learned about Gazelle, a site that will pay you to recycle your old products. The company buys a range of items that includes computers, cell phones, MP3 players, LCD monitors, external hard drives, digital cameras, camcorders, and more.
