If you got a new shiny gadget for the holidays you probably have some that are just sitting around the house. 
Then the question that comes up is, 'how do you get rid of them'?
There's a lot of ways you can get rid of your old high priced items.
One of the most important things you need to know before you do that is that you need to wipe them clean of any information you might have on them.

It's pretty common for the latest cell phone, television, computer, or anything high tech to be at the top of a lot of Christmas lists.
If you can't use your old gadget as a hand me down then there are three ways to get rid of them.
  • First - A lot of times you can sell them for cash on sites like eBay or Amazon. However, technology loses value quickly.
  • Second - You can donate them. You might not have a use for your old computer, but you're local school might be able to find a use for it. Nonprofit organizations are usually cash strapped and are in need of pieces of technology.
  • Third - You can recycle it. Folks in Marion and Monongalia County can do that for free. You just need to call Allied Waste 24 hours in advance. The number for Allied Waste is (304) 368-7700.
