There are numerous ways to recycle E-waste and dropping them off at a recycling center is only one of them. In fact, just by getting a little creative, you can recycle unused electronics and computers and perhaps even make a little money.
Today, there is a new wave of creativity among the generations. More consumers are recycling their old computers and laptops, but turning them into home décor, art and even jewelry. Some use it for themselves, others sell it. Either way, getting creative is a great place to start.
If you are not the artistic type, you can still enjoy computer and laptop recycling. Call ProTek today to schedule a free non-bulk pickup of your electronic waste.
Creative Recycling Ideas
- Make Jewelry – You may not think your old computer or laptop could be fashionable, but you would be surprised. Some artists have been taking old keyboard keys and turning them into everything from necklace pendants to earrings to rings and even fancy cufflinks. They are not only eco-friendly, but a great way to make a fashion statement.
- Create Clocks – Clocks are one of the easiest crafts to make – in fact, you can buy a kit at your local craft store. Some artists have used old compact discs and even computer boards for their backdrop on homemade clocks.
- Notebooks – Remember those old floppy disks? Instead of throwing them out, some artists have created small, fun and funky notebooks from them. They work as the perfect hardback cover and add a little zest to an ordinary notebook.
Even if you are not the creative type, there are plenty of options for getting rid of old computers and laptops without throwing them into landfills. Laptop and computer recycling companies take keyboards, laptops, computer desktops and even printers for recycling.
