I was pretty impressed when I read that 39 percent of Americans recycle their old electronic gizmos. But not everyone lives in an area where they can responsibly ditch used cell phones, DVD players and cameras—or remembers to do it.

So that means that roughly 61 percent of us are not recycling and, worse—those old devices could end up in landfills.

But here’s a solution that lets you earn rewards points for being green. Before you toss that e-device, check out Choose from a large list of gizmos the site will take, print out a packing slip and a mailing label, and send them in.

For every item that qualifies, you can earn up to 10 points, and have the peace of mind that your old used laptop or iPhone will either be reused, recycled, or disposed of in a responsible way. The points can be used at any of the tons of partners at the site, from Beth Bath & Beyond to McDonald's to Ruby Tuesday to

Also remember that some retailers have their own recycling programs including Costco and Radio Shack. This is something you might want to ask about before you start buying those shiny new gadgets on your holiday shopping list.
