Old tablet PCs are a common sight in most homes right now. We upgrade gadgets as fast as computer manufacturers are releasing their newer and faster models. We love having new things and enjoy having the latest tablet PCs and other computer peripherals to tinker with. What we do not realize is that when these discarded, unused, old tablet PCs, laptops and gadgets which we consider trash are not disposed of properly, they can drastically harm our environment.
These kinds of items require special care in their disposal because of the materials that they are made of. The metallic parts in their circuit boards could corrode and the liquid could seep into our soil and reach our water systems. A whole bunch of it would contaminate our water source. Don’t risk contamination. Just sell that Playbook that you don’t use to companies that specialize in recycling these items. Yes, you can get paid for recycling things. Now that you know that, it is time to sort through your old stuff and send the electronics to the nearest recycling center.

Remember, when you sell Playbooks and other old, unused and broken tablet PCs for recycling, you are doing your share in helping save the environment.

Playbook runs on its own OS, and most of the time, app developers make versions of their apps for the BB OS as more of an afterthought. Here are some apps that run great on the Playbook:
