RentScouter is happy to announce we are now partnered with CExchange, Consumer Electronics Exchange. CExchange is dedicated to reduce, reuse, and recycle electronics while putting cash in your pocket. Help the planet – sell electronics for cash and let others enjoy them or be responsibly recycled.
A quick bit of information from the CExchange website:
What it actually means to be Green:
Consumer Electronics Exchange cares deeply about our environment. It is, after all, our business. But it gets much more personal than that.
Among the founders of our company you will find hobbies and interests outside of work that are quite literally outside activities. Our founders and employees enjoy marathons, triathlons, surfing, snowboarding, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and many other outdoor activities. But what we enjoy most is passing on our love for the outdoors to our children. Much of the pride we take in our work here at CExchange is the fact that we are helping to keep our environment clean so that people can safely enjoy the great outdoors now and well into the future.
We understand that there is considerable confusion around e-waste and which “electronics recycling” companies you can trust. So please do your research, know who you are giving your electronic device to and where it goes from there.
So What Does CExchange Do with Your Electronic Device?
Most electronic devices we receive from consumers, retailers and manufacturers are refurbished so they can be re-purposed and reused. This reduces the amount of raw materials needed to manufacture new products and helps to conserve our natural resources. For the electronics that can’t be refurbished we provide them to ECS Refining. ECS is an e-Steward, one of North America’s most Responsible Recyclers that upholds the Electronics Recycler’s Pledge of True Stewardship – the World’s Most Rigorous Environmental and Social Justice Criteria for Recycling e-Waste. ECS adheres to all state and federal environmental regulations and complies with ISO 14001 environmental management standards ensuring that no hazardous waste will be improperly disposed.
What Is Dangerous About eWaste?
Substances found in consumer electronics include such dangerous waste as arsenic, lead, cadmium, and beryllium which have a high risk of leeching into water sources, polluting the air, and contaminating the soil if disposed of improperly. It is estimated that over 100 million mobile phones are tossed into landfills each year, representing a tremendous risk to the environment and to our health. Of course, that’s just mobile phones. When you add in all the other personal electronics (nearly all of which have batteries) the problem becomes much worse.
Help the environment by putting some green in your pockets.
