It is the time of year to get rid of the old and bring in the new, especially with electronics.
There are ways to recycle those old electronics. One of your options is to take them to the landfill.
"The government's current program accepts computers, monitors, fax machines, all the prefrail that goes with your computer like your speakers, your keyboards, your mice and televisions, all sizes of televisions," says Tammy Nygaard of the landfill.
"We actually accept microwaves, telephones, stereos, DVD players and other things that are not included in the program but we know they can get recycled. We take them anyway and ship them off. We don't get paid for them but we do get them recycled."
Another option is to take them to be refurbished at Tech Rex. The electronics such as computers and game consoles can be accepted for a cash price or on a trade in for something else. Older computers that no longer work can even be brought in as they may have parts that will work for other machines.
"We always factory wipe them and put on a brand new copy of windows on because I would not want somebody else's information going around town that's very important privacy," says Len Denbrok of Tech Rex.
