Consumer Electronics Adoptions Service through NextWorth

nextworthlogoI hate to admit it but for years, old cell phones in our house wound up in the kids toy box. What a treat while it lasted – my kids fake texting each other, pressing the speaker button and yelling at the phone – those were good times but those days are over and for that we have NextWorth to thank.  NextWorth will pay the postage on any cell phone you want to recycle and for models like the iPhone or Blackberry, they’ll determine it’s value and send you a check.  Ultimately, NextWorth will find a new home for your cell phone through sales on Ebay as refurbished products.

My Current Cell Phone

Recycle Me!

Use their website to establish how much your cell phone or personal electronics are worth beforehand and then ship them to NextWorth using the pre-paid postage label they’ll create for you.  It’s all done through a reverse shopping cart and if your cellphone is like my mine, NextWorth will still take it back and Jubblingly dispose of it.

NextWorth will also give you cash for or recycle digital cameras, GPS’s (Garmin), video game consoles (Sony Playstation, Xbox etc.), laptops (Apple iBook etc.), iPod’s (Nano, Shuffle, iPod Touch) and video games (Mario Cart etc.).  The Jubbling is obvious but what makes this smart is that NextWorth has partnered with Target, Amazon and others giving you the option of getting your payment in gift cards… to buy more electronics.  We haven’t seen the same ROI with our partner, Vern Fonk Insurance but we’re still hopeful.

Coca-Cola partners with Clemson to step up game-day recycling

From the Clemson University Newsroom.

CLEMSON – Coca-Cola is partnering with Clemson University’s athletic department and the Solid Green campaign to increase recycling on home football game days.

Fans attending the games will notice new recycling bins, provided by Coca-Cola, in each parking lot. Coca-Cola has donated 100 of the bins to the athletic department to be placed in parking lots around campus. The bins themselves are also recycled: each bin is a used syrup container, refurbished by Coca-Cola and converted into a recycling bin.

Some lucky fans may be “caught green-handed” using the bins. Before each game, a camera crew will roam parking lots looking for fans putting cans or bottles in the recycling bins. One fan will be selected to appear on the video screen during the game and will receive a $100 gift card from Coca-Cola.

“Coca-Cola is thrilled to work with Solid Green and Clemson athletics to create a fun recycling campaign for fans. It is our goal to recycle or reuse 100 percent of the bottles and cans used for beverages in the U.S. We hope Tiger fans remember that when they’re done, that bottle is not. It can be recycled,” said Heather Hucks, Coca-Cola senior sponsorship manager for colleges and universities.

Clemson students also will be doing their part to help with the effort. Student organizations will collect cans and bottles from the bins each game day and transport them to the university’s recycling center.

“It is great to see this kind of collaboration happening at Clemson to help enhance our recycling efforts. We appreciate the support of Coca-Cola and the athletic department to make Clemson a greener campus,” said Solid Green chairwoman Rose Ellen Davis-Gross.

Jubbling take: Jubbling: 100%. The chance that one “lucky” underage fan might get flashed on the screen dropping a can in the recycle bin: 95.2%. Chance that it’s a Coke or soda can: 0%
