How To Recycle Used Video Games, Old Movies, And More

Look around your apartment. We're thinking it resembles an electronic graveyard. Be honest with yourself—when's the next time you're going to play Paper Boy or watch any of those DVDs? Does half of that stuff even function?

There's really only one thing to do: trade it in for cash. Here's how:

Get Green for Going Green

Gazelle.com will give you cold, hard cash for your old electronics. Cell phones, laptops, DVDs and DVD players, they take almost anything—even your old graphing calculator from high school that's probably still stuffed somewhere in a drawer. Tell them what you're trying to get rid of, they send you a pre-paid shipping box, then you get cash. (Want more details? Click here.)

Cash In On Your Childhood

If you're anything like us, you still have stacks of old Nintendo, Playstation and maybe even Sega games hiding in storage. Whether that storage is your parent's basement or underneath your bed, they're not doing anything there but collecting dust. Why not send them to Amazon in exchange for a Amazon.com gift card? It's a win-win, and they even pick up the shipping!

Give Away For The Greater Good

Taking inventory of all your material possessions can make you feel, well, a little materialistic. Redeem yourself by trading your old gadgets (both working and non) and then donating the proceeds. MyBoneYard will even do all the heavy lifting for you. Just request a prepaid mailer and your work is basically done. It's that easy—but don't worry, we won't tell. You can take all the credit.
