Is there a place that accepts old gadgets for recycling?
« on: November 28, 2008, 01:18:26 AM »
Ive been cleaning my room and I realized that I have a lot of old, broken and outdated electronic gadgets that need to be tossed away like old calculators, chargers and even a PDA. Nakakapanghinayang though if they go straight to the trash bin. Would anyone know a place that would take these things?

Thanks.

parang napanood ko sa unang hirit na pwedeng dalhin sa hmr phils yung mga old gadgets tapos they will recycle it/dispose properly. better ask them.

Call Goodwill. They always accept broken down stuff. The people they train use those to practice on.

Sis, meron dropbox sa SM Megamall (Building A entrance doon sa Megastrip side), just drop your old gadgets doon and sila na ang bahala.

SM has a waste market din. Not sure lang of their sked pero parang every week meron.

At one time, I also noticed that they have dispensers around the mall where you can put your recyclables:D

i think sa lahat ng Globe business centers or sa mga Ayala Malls may mga drop box where you can put your electronic stuff for disposal.

RE: Car batteries, we always bring this to our neighborhood battery supplier.  They buy this for around P10-15 (if I recall correctly).

Other electronic gadgets, you can sell to junk shops or electronic srepair shops.
