    Best Buy will take 3 e-waste products at a time. I dropped off my old radio alarm clock and some old cell phones there. They deleted all the data off them for me first.

    I just received an email from Staples recently. They accept most e-waste. Batteries are a great thing to drop off. They stated they will clean your files a minimum of 7 times according to local/national law and they will give up to $2 for recycle printer refills. This is one company jumping in to help.

    If it's a phone that's completely functional, just outdated (I have an old iPhone 4s that I'm no longer using), where should I take it? Is there anywhere that will buy it from me or give me any money at all for it rather than just recycling it for free?

      You mentioned your phone is functional but do an internet search for "sell broken iphone 4s" to get a nice selection. Try working with a company that has an A+ Better Business Bureau rating. Get quotes from different businesses who buy used phones to see who can give you the best offer. Good Luck Kayla!

      You can check gazelle.com they will pay for it. Another app called declutter will pay you for used electronics, books, DVDs and CDs too.
