Gazelle Powers Electronics Trade In and Recycle Program for Costco

Wed, 07/22/2009 - 9:33am
BOSTON, /PRNewswire/ -- For years, the missing link in the lifecycle of electronic gadgets was what to do with them once consumers were done using them. That gap in the lifecycle meant that old cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras and other gadgets congregated and gathered dust in drawers and boxes in houses across the U.S. Gazelle, the nation's largest online consumer electronics reCommerce service, has stepped into that gap to enable consumers to earn cash by easily trading in electronics for cash or to be recycled.

Gazelle is helping consumers clean out their drawers and boxes while preventing more than 20 tons of e-waste from entering landfills to date and rewarding their customers an average of $100 for each transaction. Forward-thinking retailers are taking notice. Gazelle today announces that Costco Wholesale Corporation ("Costco") is partnering with the company to power its electronics trade in and recycle program. With the program, Costco members are provided with a fast, safe and easy way to trade in their unused electronics for Costco Cash Cards, which can be used for purchases at Costco stores or, or if the devices are no longer valuable, to have them responsibly recycled for free. The program will accept consumer electronics in a growing number of nearly 20 categories including digital cameras, laptops, MP3 players, cell phones and more.
