There are lots of gadget recycling options out there, and sometimes the number of choices can be overwhelming. EcoSquid is a site that compares many different websites and lets you choose the best option for selling, trading in, or recycling your old device. You just type in what gadget you want to get rid of, and the site will give you a list of options. So step away from that blender…
EcoSquid works like the travel site Kayak for gadget recycling, you just sign up for the free account once, and then you can search all of the different sites for your best option.
The site also allows you to earn points for selling and recycling, rating your experience, and referring friends. The points will let you get discounts on devices, and possibly win prizes. There was a Droid X available for $19.99 (with a Verizon account, though).
According to Nik Raman, founder of EcoSquid, “Our biggest competitor is your hallway junk drawer.”
The site has been in beta, but it officially launched today. EcoSquid is based in New York, and was started by Nik Raman and Christian Croft.
