While recycling is certainly preferred over dumping electronic items into a landfill, it still overlooks the opportunity to reuse a device in its entirety. When electronics are recycled, they are often dismantled for their raw materials. Reusing electronics, on the other hand, extends the life of a working device. Reuse helps eliminate the amount of energy spent recycling devices, the amount of energy spent in creating new items, and the amount of waste created in the packaging and shipping of new items. Best of all, reusing devices gives less fortunate individuals in our community access to technology and opportunity in the digital age.
