Never Throw in the Garbage Cart / Bin
Never throw away computer accessories, including power cables, mice, keyboards, thumb drives, modems or headphones. They are made of plastics and metals that can release toxic chemicals like dioxins in a landfill.
Alternative Ways to Recycle

Microsoft Trade-In and Recycling Program
Visit any Microsoft store location to trade in old devices, game consoles or games for Microsoft store credit. If your items no longer carry substantial value, they will be wiped of data and safely recycled. If you aren’t near a store location, you can request a prepaid postage label to mail in your items.
