HOW TO IMPROVE OUR RECYCLING PROCESS
Recycle the type of stuff that's been taking up room in your home, gathering dust and making a nuisance of itself. You really would be surprised at how much some of those items are worth.
With technology moving as fast as it does, you are doubtless in the same position as many others, whereby last week's a-la-mode video games - that the kids begged and begged for - are the virtual reality version of today's chip paper. There's every chance you've switched to blu-ray, and transferred your music collection to MP3, but have not yet got around to getting rid of what is now essentially clutter.
It can be difficult to throw away a big pile of CDs, or give them away to a charity shop, can't it? There's some sentimental attachment, and if you're part of an older generation then you're likely to still be finding it difficult to get your head around the notion that those tangible little discs, with their great booklets containing artwork and lyrics, have all been replaced by something that miraculously takes up no actual physical space.
The advice, here at back2cash, is to get up in the loft, or in the shed, the basement, the spare room or the garage - under the beds - and do a spot of reconnoitring. A simple five-minute exploratory survey could reveal a box of unwanted DVDs that have been up there for years, gathering dust.
Perhaps there is a few boxes of old books up there, or somebody's ghastly noughties CD collection. So, as well as freeing up some space and making you some cash, getting rid of yesteryear's chart toppers will allow you to exorcize the demons of Dido, cleanse your home of the drone of Akon, and banish the blasted racket of Razorlight, along with Take That's comeback claptrap.
You can still get great prices for your unwanted video games, DVDs, books, CDs and mobile phones. The process is simple, and has been designed to make things as easy for you as possible. You just enter the details of your items into a recyclers website, get it valued, agree a price with them and that's that.
They'll either pick your items up from you, free of charge, or ask you to drop off at a convenient location, examine the items to ensure there's no damage, and instantly send you your money via PayPal or bank transfer - it could not be easier.
