How to recycle this Christmas

Gadgets are a popular gift to give at Christmas time – the latest Smartphones, Kindles and Tablets are always being made faster, stronger, more compact and better than its previous design.

But once you have this newest gadget in your hand, what becomes of your old one?

There are usually two options. One is to leave it switched off gathering dust on a shelf. The other is to throw it in the rubbish bin and forget all about it. 

Eco friendly Christmas

 







We want to offer you a third option. The Eco Friendly option.

Eco Friendly. It sounds boring doesn’t it? Well, we find being Eco Friendly quite exciting. We love helping out in big or small ways to protect our environment. We enjoy offering advice to those who wish to be Eco Friendly, and above all else, we love the deep feeling of satisfaction when we are assigned a job and complete it successfully knowing there is a portion of e-waste which isn’t dumped and giving off harmful chemicals.

How can you help?

It really is quite simple and involves minimal effort.

All you need to do is take a good look at your old gadget(s) and ask yourself:

•    Can someone else benefit from this?
•    Is my gadget in good working condition?
•    Is the broken screen repairable?
•    Do I have a charger for gadget available?

If the answer to all these questions is yes, then we suggest you sell it. (Of course repair broken screens first!) Instead of leaving it on that shelf, sell it to someone who might need it, and you get a little bit extra pocket money!

If you answered yes to all the questions above but don’t really want the hassle of selling, then we suggest you donate it.

It may come as a surprise but there are lots of places and people who need a phone, a computer or laptop. Find your local non-profit organization and ask them if they need anything. What may be last season’s laptop may be a life-line for someone else.

However, if you don’t wish to sell or donate, then our last suggestion is recycle it. It’s important to recycle to reduce the impact waste has on the environment. Finding your local recycling centre is easier than you think.

OR if you have a number of unused/unwanted/broken gadgets lying around, then give us a call. We can collect and do the hard work. Find the list of items we collect here and see what else we do.
