According to EPA, U.S. consumers throw away nearly 2 million tons of consumer electronics each year, ending up as mountains of “e-waste” in landfills. Recycling begins with reuse and selling your used consumer electronics will ensure they stay out of the waste stream.
After buying electronics, Gazelle evaluates their condition, and those items in working condition are sold through a variety of outlets. Any personal data is removed first from all electronics resold. Any items without market value are recycled responsibly.
Through our association with Gazelle, we at Rated4Stars are very pleased to be able to offer our visitors and customers an opportunity for responsible recycling. As our site is focused on consumer electronics products, we feel strongly that each of us needs to be aware and take responsibility for the growing number of electronics products or “e-waste,” entering our waste stream. We hope you find an opportunity to participate in Gazelle’s innovative recycling program. Please let us know about your experience. Thank you.
