You could even use it as the base for a clock – just attach some hands to the back and voila, you’ve got yourself an interesting new timepiece!

Alternatively, many retailers also offer trade-in deals on certain items which allow customers receive discounts when trading in their used electronics instead throwing them away carelessly…so keep an eye out for these too!

Many non-profit organizations accept donations like this on behalf regular basis – they usually list exactly which types items they require on their website – so just double check before sending anything through post office/courier services etc.
