Global waste production is projected to increase by 70% by 2050, and with Earth Day fast approaching, sustainability is on everyone’s mind. Recycling unwanted products will not only help clear customers’ conscience and homes, but in some cases they can also get tax or store credits in return. For example:
- Consumers can donate computers to Goodwill through the Dell Reconnect program and turn unwanted devices into a tax deduction;
- GameStop, Amazon and Walmart all accept trade-ins of used electronics that are still in good condition, and customers can receive cash or store credit; and
- Most furniture is no longer accepted for donation at large thrift chains like Goodwill, but consumers can make a pretty penny selling their still-functional couches and tables on resale platforms like LetGo, AptDeco and Facebook Marketplace.
