Get Paid to Recycle!

Have old, broken technology sitting around? Not sure what to do with it? Recycle it! There are tons of companies who will gladly take these off your hands and pay you for it.

Certain companies, like Green Citizen, are receiving old, broken devices, from people who no longer want or use them, and are combining the working parts and selling them back to others. This saves tons of waste from piling up in landfills.

This video clip explains Green Citizen’s initiative to help people be more green:
