Today we are talking about recycling cell phone parts, such as cords, chargers and headphones. Here are some tips from the article from @marthastewart, How to Get Rid of Anything".
For old charger cords and plugs, you should never toss them in the trash. The heavy metals can be harmful as they break down and plastic casings need special processing. Instead, go to your nearest @bestbuy to properly dispose of any old cords, cables, and earbuds.
You can even earn rewards for recycling headphones from any brand by using the mail-in programs from JLab Audio or thinksound. Both companies will reward you with a discount coupon, eligible for use on their products, if you mail in your old headphones.
