This is a good example of technology solving the growing problem of e-waste created by technology. The ecoATM is a patented automated self-serve kiosk that quickly evaluates and buys back used cell phones, MP3 players, and even tablets from consumers for cash or store credit. In the video, you can see the ecoATM giving the used device a thorough inspection before automatically buys back the device for trade-in/trade-up or recycling.
Unfortunately, ecoATM is only available in a few selected cities in California right now. People living on the West Coast, click here to find a location near you.
