What can I do with broken electronics?
Like lap tops, music player, phones, etc.
1-800- recycle I believe is the number to call to find out where you can send your old junk. Always be careful with old computers, as it is sometimes possible for disreputable people to extract personal information (such as credit card numbers, addresses, phone numbers, even SSNs), so take those to places that specialize in recycling (or reclaiming) old computers.
Cell phones can be taken to some drug stores that have special cell phone re-use programs that take old phones and give them to people that need them, such as low income families or veterans.
Of course, if they are truly broken, your best best is just to find a recycle center.
Many major retailers like Best Buy and Target actually have recycling bins near the front of their stores for old electronics. They are even separated by categories like ink or small electronics. It is probably the easiest and quickest way.
