and after you donate it, then what

You didn’t think they actually sent your old electronics to third-world countries now, did ya? When it’s time for that shiny new must-have that Techcrunch raves about, what do you with the old stuff? You can eBay it, but good luck getting decent cash. You can donate it, but then you have to find a place that will take it. That still doesn’t address the e-waste nobody wants though.

Best Buy recycles computers for free (it costs $10 but they give you a $10 gift card).
