How it Works

Here's how it works

You collect electronics, we buy them from you and you get paid to recycle! 

Think Recycle Buys:

  • Cell Phones
  • Laptop Computers
  • Ipads
  • Ink and Toner Cartridges

See entire Acceptable Products List here.

Interested in joining the Think Recycle program but don’t know where to start? Follow these 3 easy steps and you’ll be on your way in no time!

1. Register as a New Member

 As a registered member, you will enjoy full access to all of our member support services which includes:

  • Free Starter Kit includs marketing and communiations templates, tips and tools
  • Online account which allows you to view shipments, order supplies and receive payment
  • Up to date news on Think Recycle contests, promotions and incentives

2. Recycle Your Electronics

Spread the word about which products you want to collect and recycle. Raising awareness with on-going communications promotion is the key to your success. Connect with family, friends, students, parents and supporters to let them know about your program. Connect with office managers, sustainability and IT personnel and ask about donating their unwanted electronics to a good cause.

So now you have a box of 15 or more items to recycle. Now what? Go to acceptable products to see the value of each item collected and then add them to your box. Once we receive your box contentents, we will send you shipping labels and instructions.

3. Get Paid!

Once we’ve received and inspected your items, we will credit your account. As soon as you’ve raised $50 or more, you can ask for your dues, at which point we’ll be able to say “your check is in the mail.” We like saying that, and it’s even better because it’s true!
