Title: Is there a place that accepts old gadgets for recycling?
Post by: carms 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Ive been cleaning my room and I realized that I have a lot of old, broken and outdated electronic gadgets that need to be tossed away like old calculators, chargers and even a PDA.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?

I've got a bunch of cellphone batteries, what to do with them?  And also some charger...
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.

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

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.

^True.  There was once an event on greenhills where they accept used or broke appliances, batteries, electronics etc.  Then my cousin just told me recently somewhere in San Juan nagkaroon din ulit ng same event.  I hope they do it often.  Way of saving Mother Nature narin and for me it's a way of being a minimalist too.  ;D

Here in Singapore they have the box where you can just drop your old gadgets. Their aim is to reduce the Carbon Footprint.

I was house cleaning December 2016 and called eWastePH.wordpress.com They came and took 90% of all the "E-Junk" electronics from me. It was a true win-win, because i didn't know where to throw all the hazardous materials found in batteries (which every device has). They even paid me a little for some working stuff! Im cleaning again before Christmas 2017, and scheduled another pickup. Glen was nice (speaks tagalog) while Brad (English only) answered most of my questions. Call Brad 0947-990-9446 (Actually text him, because he doesn't speak tagalog, so he doesn't answer calls). Glen 0949-994-9693. Good Luck!
