One of the greenest things to do with your old electronics is extend their lifetime. You can get creative with finding new life for them, or you can get some cash. Maybe you're done with your old phone or PDA, but if it still works well then it might be just what someone else is hunting for. Give your old gadgets a longer life and make some money while you're at it through buyback programs.

A buyback program purchases your electronics from you and either refurbishes and resells them or, if they've been loved just a little too much, recycles them for you. While there are sites like Craigslist and eBay where you could sell gear on your own, buyback programs make it super easy for you to get your cash without a headache.
