Getting new gadgets is loads of fun, but the question then is what to do with the old versions of those same toys. Many electronics contain components that are harmful to the environment, so they should not be thrown into the regular trash to enter a landfill or incinerator. Also, there are many parts that can be recycled for repairs on existing electronic devices or remanufactured as pieces for new tech toys.
