How To Dispose Of Old Electronics The Right Way

Before you even think about disposing of your electronic device, checking if it’s still possible to fix it can make all the difference. While some gadgets are definitely more expensive to repair than replace, there’s still hope to repair others, especially if they are still under warranty. In some cases, manufacturers will have special clauses for factory defects and recalls, which you can make use of. If your device does not fit the criteria for free repair, you still have two options: repair it yourself or get it repaired professionally.

While it’s possible that you don’t have the technical skills to repair an electronic device right away, it can be a fun little side experience to go on YouTube and try to fix it yourself. Alternatively, some tech companies, such as Google, have partnered with firms like iFixit to offer DIY repair kits for some of their devices. In some cases, manufacturers can still help you repair a device that is out of warranty for a fee. Should the cost be manageable, the repaired device can appear as good as new and even have an extended warranty.

With a repaired device, you can continue to use it until the end of its lifespan. Or, if you do choose to upgrade, you can opt to donate this working device to other people who may still have use for it.
