USPS Recycles Customers' Old Electronics

"If you purchased a new iPhone 5 yesterday and are wondering what to do with your old mobile phone, then a trip to the post office is in order. Yes, the post office. The United States Postal Service (USPS) expanded its recycling program and now allows customers to trade in their old electronics for cash, including cell phones, at one of 3,100 retail locations nationwide," according to Melissa Hincha-Ownby on the Mother Nature Network website.

Hincha-Ownby goes on to say, "Customers interested in trading in an old cell phone, digital camera, PDA or other small electronic device should first visit the Recycle Through USPS website. The USPS has partnered with MaxBack and customers will be routed to a new website where they will first search for the specific electronic device that they want to trade in.

"Once the device has been located in the USPS/MaxBack database, an instant quote is provided and the customer can then accept the quote. The next step is to mail in the device, at no charge, using USPS Priority Mail. Upon receipt of the device, MaxBack will inspect the item and mail the cash to the customer."
