Well there’s another company that’s launched a similar service in the US. Gazelle.com buys the same sort of stuff plus dvds, camcorders, cameras and all that sort of stuff. Not only does it promise to give an offer to anything you want to send it (it’ll pay for postage and packaging), you can choose to donate your money to charity rather than keep it too.
Seems pretty simple, just answer the questions it has for you online and a calculator will tell you how much it’ll pay for it. And it promise it won’t send a single thing to landfill.
