Walmart Now Offers Electronics Recycling

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Walmart Inc. is now paying people for certain used electronic devices to help keep electronic waste out of landfills, the company said Monday.

To trade in their electronics, users can go to https://walmart.cexchange.com/online/home/index.rails to see what brands of each device are accepted. If theirs is on the list, they can fill out a brief questionnaire that will tell them the amount that CExchange, a Texas-based company working with Walmart, may offer for it.

They can then print a prepaid shipping label and ship their device for free with FedEx. Walmart will send an electronic gift card after evaluating the device.

"Most electronic devices we receive from consumers, retailers and manufacturers are refurbished so they can be repurposed and reused," CExchange said.

Devices that can't be refurbished are sent to a company certified to properly dispose of electronic waste, or e-waste. None will be sent to landfills.

Companies with similar trade-in programs include Best Buy and GameStop.

Only 17.4% of global e-waste was collected and properly recycled in 2019, according to Statista.
