  1. If your school or favorite non-profit participates in the TerraCycle program you may also be able to send your electronics to the school or non-profit for recycling. Check TerraCycle.com for a list of Brigades. It doesn’t sound like much but our school has cashed in on garbage $.02 at a time (more for printer cartridges, cell phones, and other small electronics, shoes, if it’s not a traditional recyclable it’s probably here). It has taken us a few years but we have brought in about $600 from waste that would otherwise sit in a landfill.

    If your school or non-profit doesn’t participate, talk to your PTO, church group, organization et. al. and see if they would like YOU to head up the garbage brigade. Shipping is free. All you have to do is print a packing slip, sort the materials, pack it up and send it out.
