Your Old Cellphone Is Worth Money

Used electronics are about to become hot stuff in Israel, thanks to a new law. Don't just throw out that ancient iPad!

Don’t throw out that limping laptop, old MP3 player or superannuated smartphone – they could net you a few hundred shekels. A new law about to go into effect on January 1, 2013, provides for the recycling of electronic waste in Israel and could give renewed purpose to your junk drawer.
