EcoSquid is a web platform that helps you find the best options to sell or recycle your old electronics.Think of them as the http://www.Kayak.com for electronics reselling and recycling. Today, I received a question on the DorothyTheOrganizer Facebook page from our very thoughtful FB friend, Sarah Perrin, and I thought I would share the answer with all of you.
Electronic waste is a growing problem—one that most of us are committed to solving. After lots of research, EcoSquid found that most consumers do not resell or recycle their old electronics because they just don’t know about all of the convenient options that are out there. EcoSquid solves this problem by presenting you with one easy-to-use platform that integrates electronics repurchasing and recycling programs from major retailers, resellers, and recyclers.
On EcoSquid, you can quickly find the product you wish to dispose of and then choose from a number of options to resell or recycle that product. If your product has value, you can select a deal based on a number of factors, including the amount of cash offered for the product and user reviews of the service. If your product has no value or you are not interested in selling it, we will recommend the best way to responsibly recycle or donate it.
We hope that by simplifying the process and providing you with objective information, you are convinced to either prolong the life of your electronics or responsibly dispose of them. The service that EcoSquid provides is free, so I hope that you will check it out! http://www.ecosquid.com/client/index.jsp

Why EcoSquid is different
Because EcoSquid does not provide a repurchasing or recycling service of its own, it is 100% objective. They know how frustrating it can be to research all of the options for disposing of electronic waste online, and they want to make it simple. Additionally, they want to make sure that you feel comfortable with the services that you select. So, they’ve provided you with the ability to rate services and read reviews from other consumers that have experienced those services firsthand.
