    • Powers on and reset to factory settings?
    • Screen chipped, cracked, or have LCD damage?
    • Casing cracked or damaged?

Once we receive your Samsung phone, we’ll inspect it and confirm its value. Then you’ll receive your check, gift card or PayPal deposit in about a week.

Have other electronics you want to sell? NextWorth accepts devices in 11 product categories from smartphones and calculators to DVDs and cameras.

The Digital Dump: Recycle Your Electronics Instead

As technology advances and more electronic devices are on the market, we have to find a place to dispose of all of these unused devices. Unfortunately, many electronics turn into e-waste filling landfills and creating a digital dump. As the problem piles up, many countries find it easier to ship their e-waste overseas. Here at NextWorth, we believe this problem can be solved in our homes by recycling electronics to local donation organizations or by trading in with us!

Visual.ly created “The Digital Dump” infographic to explain how quickly electronic waste is piling up and what devices are the biggest culprits.

 Piling Up Electronic Waste

  • Electronic waste (E-waste) is piling up around the world at a rate of 40 million tons per year. Do your part by recycling electronics when you’re finished using them. Click to Tweet!
  • The numbers are startling for electronic waste. The United States produces 3.3 million tons of e-waste in a year! Click to Tweet!

Electronic Waste by Device

  • How many TVs are there just in your household? Do you upgrade your TV every time there’s a new model or size differentiation? On average, the United States throws out 25 million TVs per year. Click to Tweet!
  • Think about the number of computers you use personally and add that number to the number of computers businesses use. On average, the United States throws out 47.5 million computers per year. Click to Tweet!
  • How many friends or family members own a cell phone? Do they upgrade their phone every year or every two years with a contract? On average, the United States throws out 100 million cell phones per year. Click to Tweet!

Assess the amount of electronics you own and if you’re contributing to the growing e-waste problem. Then, trade-in your electronics with us and be paid for doing your part to help get rid of e-waste.
