Reuse THEN Recycle, How to Sell Your Old Electronics

Check out Gazelle, a quick and simple way to sell your old electronics. Here is how they describe what they do:

Gazelle wants to change the world – one cell phone, one laptop, one iPod at a time.
It is our purpose – and our promise – to provide a practical, rewarding way for people to finally rid themselves of all those old cell phones, digital cameras, and gaming systems that they no longer use, but can't seem to find a way to let go of.
Too often when people think of recycling, they rush straight to smashing things into bits for parts. We believe that reuse should always come first. If your GPS unit still works, why not keep it in circulation AND get paid for it? If reusing isn't in the cards, then let us recycle that vintage camcorder. We think of it as ReCommerce.
Yeah, we're green.
Green for you with dollars in your pocket. Green for the environment with fewer electronics being trashed.

It's good to Gazelle. That's our promise.
 The process is super simple to use (I just found the site and have not used it yet) you just type in the item you have, answer a few questions about it and then accept the price they will give you for your item.  I love that they Reuse before they Recycle

Thank you SO much for posting this. I'll let you know how much I make from those 3 cell phones and small hand held TV that are sitting in the closet. LOL

I have two old laptops, a few MP3 players, and a cell phone that I need to find and sell/give to them as well. even if I only get a few bucks, its better then paying someone to dispose of it. Hopefully going this route will keep my old electronics from being shipped around the world as E-waste
