Recycling sites dedicated to mobile phones have been around for quite some time now, and millions of Brits use them to dispose of their old handsets and make a bit of  cash as well. It was only a matter of time before these sets clicked on that other electronic devices such as digital camera must also contain similar materials and have a similar value.

The sites will take all makes of digital cameras from leading brands that include Casio, Sony, Kodak, Canon, Nikon and many more. It’s very easy to get started, all you do is visit the mobile recycling sites to see which ones also recycle digital camera. When you find the ones that do, search for the model you have and see what they are paying. When you find a price you are happy with register with the site and they will send you a prepaid envelope.

Pop your camera into the envelope and send it back. Once the site receives the camera they will check it over and you will receive either vouchers or cash to the value you accepted. This only take a few days, and the whole process from beginning to end should take no more than 7-10 days.

As with mobile phones, these sites will accept your cameras even if they are faulty or broken, and you could be offered as much as 80% of the original price. Whilst some sites only deal in cash, other will offer shopping vouchers, and you will often get the best deal with the vouchers and could get up to 15% more.

Everyone is looking for a bit of extra cash for Christmas, so the time has never been better to recycle your old or unwanted digital cameras. The hazardous materials contained within such electronic devices that don’t break time, but instead leak into the soil causing environmental problems. You recycle your household waste so it makes sense to recycle your cameras.
