Consumers encouraged to recycle old gadgets
16 June 2009 — 10:23 AM
Consumers are being encouraged to recycle mobile phones, printers, computers and any other technologies they may recently have replaced.
According to a post for the If It Prints, I'll Let You Know blog, the speed at which modern gadgets are evolving means many of us may have items lying around unwanted that could be used better elsewhere.
Of course, when it comes to mobile phones, people may find they are able to generate cash that can be used to help reduce the expense of an upgrade - and the site adds the environmental aspect should be enough to inspire others.
"An important thing to remember though, when passing on gadgets, is to clean out the memory and remove any personal data saved into the gadget," the site concludes.
Consumers looking to purchase a more eco-friendly phone with the cash they receive for their trade-in, may wish to consider the Sony Ericsson Greenheart range - which includes the C901 and Naite devices.
