Green Tip #10 – Trade in and recycle your old electronics with Costco

This week’s Green Tip was submitted by Melissa at Nature Deva

Costco (one of Melissa’s favorite stores) offers a Trade-In and Recycle Program*, conducted by third party Greensight, for electronic equipment like MP3 players, computers, digital cameras, monitors, printers, fax machines and more. You go to the Trade-In and Recycle Program, select what you’d like to trade in, answer some questions regarding the details and condition of the equipment and are offered a trade-in value, which will be sent to you in the form of a Costco gift card. Even items such as monitors, printers and fax machines that have no trade in value, are still accepted to be recycled for FREE.

This is a fabulous way to keep electronics out of the landfills AND get some cash back, or at the very least, recycle them free of charge.

*The Costco Trade-In and Recycle Program is available only to members of Costco who elect to trade in or recycle any qualifying consumer electronic product currently offered by the program.

Thanks, Melissa!

  3. HI Amy. Kinda OT. I JUST found this out last night. Staples will give you 3$ toward your next purchase for every empty ink cartridge you bring in…for recycling. Oh how excited i was to find this out. LOL. Just a little “green” knowledge I thought I would pass on for those who like me, go through ink like crazy! Have a great night. Congrats on being quoted in the news. 🙂
