 cell phones you can recycle/donate to the troops overseas..computers, tv's, and stuff of that nature you can donate and if they need repairs places will make the repairs for shelters for low cost or free and if not then you can donate them to whoever.

I actually took the battery out of my old cell and gave it to DS so he'd leave my phone alone.

We scrub and sell old computers for some cash, and we only get new phones when ours break. I just sold our videocam...So if it's working, I sell it! lol.

Whatever can be recycled we recycle. Or donate. Or giveaway. I hate throwing things like that if someone can use them in some way :/

There is a state wide ban on putting then in the trash in SC.  So, I watch for when my county is having an electronics recycling event and take them in on that day.

My daughter plays with our old cell phones. We give away other old electronics.
