Turn Old Gadgets Into Green

Everyone has old electronic gadgets laying around the house that need to be recycled. You know what I mean - old cell phones that have been replaced by shiny new ones, cameras that have seen better days, laptops that have worn out their welcome, etc. If for whatever reason, you haven't recycled these items yet, head over to Radio Shack to check out their trade-in program.

Simply take your products and/accessories to Radio Shack and a sales associate will appraise them. If you accept their offer, you receive a Radio Shack gift card for that value that you can use right away. How simple is that?

If you don't want to go to Radio Shack, you can go www.radioshack.com to find out how much your items are worth. They will even provide you with a pre-paid shipping label for you to print, so it won't cost you a thing to ship your items. They will mail you a Radio Shack gift card and you can use it online or in their stores.

Okay, now for the 'catch'. It's not really a catch, but all products must be in working condition. What does that mean? It means that they must be able to 'power on' during the appraisal process. The items that you are offering to them might not be the same as the ones that you would take to your local recycling facility, but if you have electronics that are working that nobody wants, this is a good option.
