While disposing of old laptops can be both lucrative and eco-friendly, what about other EcoGeek gadgets? With iPhones stealing the limelight in recent times, I bet there are iPods seeing less and less use these days. And with Apple cracking down on the "misuse" of the iPhone, I bet there are a lot of bricked iPhones people are unwilling to get rid of… yet. Luckily, BuyMyBrokeniPod.com is a business made to capitalize on unused and broken iPods and iPhones.
The process seems pretty simple: fill out a questionnaire, ship your iPod/iPhone to them and they will Paypal you or send a check. My working 4th generation 40 gig iPod quotes to $58.38, higher than many eBay auctions for the same thing. It's less work than craigslist and eBay while getting you a reasonable price.
If the money doesn't motivate you or if you want the latest and greatest from Apple, you can recycle your old iPod at any Apple retail store for a 10% discount on any new iPod. As for me, I will be holding onto my iPod until it dies, but I am glad that in the future I can see my baby recycled in peace once I am done with it.
