Share this news:

R3UP has launched an updated program that buys old electronics & reuses or recycles them. The company allows you to schedule a tech to pickup your device, allowing you to do everything from home.

Using a paid social recycling approach, the Iowa City-based company plans to help the environment, as well as consumers. It partners with initiatives around the world to provide mobile devices and other technology to underdeveloped areas that lack the opportunity and access to technology.

When a device is unsuitable for reuse, the company sends the device for recycling. This allows them to have a positive impact on the waste stream by keeping many devices out of landfills and being sure that any reusable components are removed and re-used.

Having a device repurposed is a three-step process. Through the company’s website, clients can search the make and model of their device. After answering a few questions about the condition of the device, they will be given an offer based on its value and potential for re-use.

The questions will include the specifications of the device’s model, such as the storage size, and what carrier the phone is locked to. Accessories that may be shipped with the device can also be factored in. They can include original chargers, boxes, and various types of headphones.

Once the questions are answered, clients will receive an immediate quoted estimate for their device, as well as an option to begin the recycling process. The next step involves choosing whether to ship the device to the company for inspection, dropping the device off at one the available drop off locations, or scheduling an appointment to have the device picked up and inspected by a tech for a small fee. The ship in option is free, as the company will send a complimentary shipping label to the client, who can then drop off the device at any USPS location for shipping.

Enterprise customers who wish to create or improve a business using a similar process can also use the company’s automated system for device purchases. They offer turnkey solutions and long-term support for businesses that wish to impact the stream of e-waste by offering buyback or trade-in options to their customers.

It is recommended that all devices be factory reset before shipping, but the company will wipe and reset all devices it receives as a precaution. Once a client’s device has been delivered and inspected, they can expect payment immediately. This can take the form of cash, cryptocurrency or various gift cards, which the client can choose during the registration process.
