    Can someone at Recyclebank explain how to recycle basic electrical-cord products (e.g., toaster, hand-mixer, lamp base) versus electronic products?

      Hi Carla, 

      Electrical cord products are also considered e-waste. If they are in working order, they could be donated. Otherwise they should be taken to an e-waste drop-off point.

    It's good to know that when I shop I see products that say made from recycled products.
