Funding Your Summer Holiday With your Old Tech

We all like to go on holiday, and whether you take your vacation at home or away, domestic or abroad, your old tech can help fund your holiday, whilst also clearing out the cupboards and drawers of unused consumer technology.

All too often we keep hold of tech long after we need to, with new releases dominating our attention. The old tech is stored away, “just in case” or because we haven’t quite transferred all of our information off of it. But often we will never use these again, the batteries will degrade and will become useless, eventually throwing away a (seemingly) useless piece of equipment.

However, a better idea is recycling the item as soon as you can after replacing it with a newer version. If it still works, then there will still be value in it and with summer just around the corner, any amount of old tech from your drawers can result in enough to get away.

The guide created by Compare and Recycle explains just how it easy to get away by recycling your old tech.
