Knowing what to do with old electronics can feel super confusing sometimes. If properly disposed or recycled, the metals in electronic waste can be salvaged and reclaimed. Yay for recycling ♻️! However, e-waste can contain nasty toxics that can harm human health. If improperly disposed, it can end up in landfills halfway around the world, or worse, in the hands of a child worker collecting scrap metal 😢. ⁣ ⁣ Make sure your old electronics gets into the right hands! Our number one tip for safely disposing e-waste is to use an established trade-in program. Many companies (including @apple, @target, @walmart, @bestbuy, and @samsungmobile) even offer cash back or gift cards for your old phone- cha-ching 💰!
