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. We feel strongly that each of us needs to be aware and take responsibility for the growing number of electronics products entering our waste stream.
Recycling begins with reuse and selling your used consumer electronics will ensure they stay out of the waste stream. Through our association with Gazelle, we are pleased to be able to offer our visitors and supporters an opportunity for responsible recycling. And recycling with Gazelle benefits Ocean Doctor, too!
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. We hope you find an opportunity to participate in Gazelle’s recycling program. Please let us know about your experience. Thank you.
