uSell recycles cell phones and gives you cash

It’s estimated that Americans discard 400 million units of electronic trash annually. That’s a massive amount of toxic – and often reusable – components, chemicals and hardware heading for the landfill. usell1.jpg

One company helping to reduce that e-waste is uSell, a new website that specializes in turning consumers’ used cell phones into cash.

The process is straightforward: You go to the uSell website and type in your phone’s model number. Subsequently, you’re shown what the phone is worth (newer phones are worth exponentially more). You then supply your email and mailing addresses – once you’ve completed the process, uSell sends you a free return mailer. You can also return multiple phones for more cash.
