Know your e-waste laws and pickup centers

Disposing of electronics is a tricky business. Tossing old monitors, PCs, cellphones and other devices straight into the dumpster is not only dangerous, but in many jurisdictions, it also carries a fine. Research the laws in your area to find out what you can and can’t throw away. Even if trashing e-waste is permitted in your area, it’s still a better choice to drop it off at a reputable e-waste recycling center, like your local electronics retailer.
