Gazelle is a website that buys back many types of used electronics, and knows exactly what to do with them. Gazelle keeps stuff out of landfills by reselling through retail, wholesale, and recycling channels. They’ve gotten rave reviews for being leaders in the “recommerce” effort, a new movement to realize the value of reuse as a powerful first step in recycling.
Just go to their site, search for the device you’re trying to sell, answer some questions about it, and get a quote on most items instantly. If you want to sell, they’ll even send out shipping materials free. In just 10 days, you can get payment via PayPal, check, or Amazon gift card (or they’ll help you donate the value to a good cause). And even if your gadgets have no resale value, Gazelle will make sure they’re recycled properly and don’t wind up in a trash heap.
A few moments ago, I did a quick search. Turns out if I sent them my cell phone, my laptop, and my Wii, I’d get $254. I look forward to “Gazelling” something soon!
