Perhaps a very imaginative and innovative way of recycling old electronics. Offload an old mobile phone, or a computer, or any electronic gadget for that matter, and get cash for coins through ecoATM's kiosks.
ecoATM has already got 15 kiosks around California, and they offer consumers a cash incentive to recycle their electronics.
