Reuse, recycle, and repurpose electronics at a PayMore Store® this Earth Day

What really happens to used electronics when you bring them to a PayMore Store® to collect the cash value towards a new device? First, we ensure that every item you bring in to us is wiped of your personal data. From contact information to GPS data, our mobile phones and other personal devices collect and store so much information about us. That’s why it’s more important than ever to protect your data privacy when you move on to a new phone or other technology tool, and we’re here to help. Our trained techs at our locations will not only wipe the data on your device, but also assist you in removing any cloud accounts that can still contain financial and personal information.

When an individual or a business brings in old electronics to a PayMore Store®, from laptops to desktop computers, and digital cameras to older phones and tablets – we offer you the best trade-in value in the business. At the store, you can collect your electronics trade-in value in cash on the spot, or use it to purchase a new or gently used item right there. Even if your old electronics are broken, won’t turn on, or haven’t seen the light of day for decades – bringing them into a PayMore Store® for free recycling helps keep harmful e-waste out of our landfills. For Earth Day this year, challenge your friends and family members to find those old and underused items and bring them in to recycle at your local PayMore Store®. Let’s see if your device is worth anything first, if it is, we can pay you; if not, we will recycle it for free!recylce electronics at paymore stores locations bulb with plant

Another way to recycle used electronics is to repurpose them for a second owner. Not only does this keep e-waste out of our landfills, repurposing electronics also helps to reduce the amount of resources and energy we use to make new ones. Oftentimes, old laptops, tablets, and even mobile phones can be wiped and repurposed – giving each one a second life in the hands of a grateful new owner. From schools to after school programs and nonprofits to families looking to save money on personal devices, PayMore Stores offer gently used electronics at low prices. This recycled stock provides a great alternative to pricey new electronics.

For every device we can give a second life to, together we are helping keep harmful e-waste and chemicals out of the environment – from our soil to our drinking water. If you have devices that you think someone else could use, bring them into a PayMore Store® to earn a trade-in value, knowing that you’re doing what you can to recycle e-waste and get refurbished electronics into the hands of your neighbors who need one.

Finally, if you’re in the market for a computer, laptop, mobile phone, or other personal device – whether for school, work, or play – consider whether a repurposed one might work best for you and your family. It’s a great option to help you save money and reduce your own footprint on the planet this year. When you trade-in or shop at a PayMore Store®, you know your data will be protected, your trade-in value delivered on-the-spot, and flexible options for trading up to a new or gently used device available in store. For businesses looking to save money on IT this year, take a look at the repurposed options at a PayMore Store® near you. We think you’ll be surprised!
