As the use of technology increase a new kind waste also increase; electronic waste. Computers, cell phones, mp3 players, and even DVDs are all considered electronic waste. The problem with recycling electronic waste is how to do so properly with out causing more waste in both domestic and foreign landfills.

This saves the consumer time and puts money back in their pockets for handling their electronic waste correctly.

    The only problem with yourenew.com is that they are small and don’t have any economies of scale. Their competitors like http://www.gazelle.com, have a focus on green as well, but offer substantially higher prices for one’s electronics. Will be interesting to see if yourenew’s emphasis on green and clever marketing can get them on their way. It won’t be the first time a worse business ends up being the market leader due to a superior sales team.
