Put down the headphones and step away from the trash can — those old electronics can be reused or recycled. At Skullcandy, we’re doing our best to reduce waste, and we appreciate you taking the time to learn about recycling your old headphones or earbuds. Recycling is easy — we’ve listed a few options below.
LOCAL DONATION CENTERS
The best way to dispose of your unwanted (but still fully functional) electronics is to give them to someone who can use them but may not be able to buy them new. A donation center like the Salvation Army or Goodwill would love to take your old headphones for someone in need.
Best Buy will take your recyclable electronics, and with nearly 200 locations across Canada, there’s bound to be one near you. For Western Canada London Drugs will also take your Skullcandy products, as long as the items were purchased at one of their stores.
YOUR LOCAL RECYCLING CENTER
You can’t just toss your electronics in the recycle bin with your cardboard and aluminum cans, but there’s probably a recycling center near you. These are normally broken up into different areas per type of recycled materials, and most have an area for electronics. Follow this link to find a recycling center near you.
