Saying Goodbye to Old Electronic Clutter

A problem that many of us face in the modern age is having too much clutter.  Whether it’s old collectables, clothing, books or even electronics, it’s not unusual to have stacks and stacks of boxes that are just taking up space and not providing any kind of use to us. We say we might need the things inside those boxes, but at that point, we’re just being pack rats. Collectables, clothing and books are easy to get rid of. Clothes and books can be recycled, and collectables are generally taken to a charity shop to get rid of. Some collectables can even be sold on auction websites for a fair bit of money if they’re in good condition.

But, what do we do about electronic waste? It can be dangerous to throw out batteries and most charity stores won’t take things like old phones and gaming consoles unless they still work or have some resale value for people to want. In the modern age, we replace our phones roughly once every two years, and we buy plenty of electronics including toys and games that use things like batteries and toxic substances. If these are simply thrown out, then they can have a negative effect on the environment and even people. It’s simply just irresponsible to bundle electronic waste and clutter with our regular trash because many of the components can be reused and recycled.
