The Spring-Cleaning Task That’s Good for the Earth and Your Pocketbook

Earth Day 2021

Earth Day and spring cleaning often go hand-in-hand. The weather warms up, you throw open the windows and doors to let the fresh air in and start digging through drawers and closets to donate or recycle the old to make room for the new. Or perhaps you’ve been using some of your “found time” during pandemic lockdowns to do that already.

“If you’re like most of us, you’ve got one or more drawers or boxes in the closet devoted to outdated tech devices,” said Brad Swenson, Owner, Device Pitstop of Maple Grove. “Most of them probably still work, maybe a few have cracked screens or have battery issues, and you don’t know what to do with them. Fortunately, there is an easy and Earth-friendly solution.”
In Minnesota, it’s against the law to toss items like computers and tablets into the trash because of toxic substances and flammable batteries contained within the devices. It’s also wasteful since you could be getting paid for getting rid of them!

Device Pitstop pays cash on the spot for your used laptops, smartphones, tablets, and more. You can also choose to utilize store credit to trade up to a new device from the store.
The experienced Pit Crew members can often repair and refurbish older devices so they’re like new. If your device can’t be repaired, Device Pitstop fully and properly recycles every device and component so they don’t end up in a landfill.

This Earth Day, clean out those closets, drawers, and boxes and bring your old laptops, computers, smartphones, and tablets to your local Device Pitstop store. You get your space back and you’ll leave with cash or can choose store credit for a device upgrade.

“Best of all, you can be assured that any and all personal information will be completely wiped from your old devices and they will be refurbished or properly recycled,” said Swenson. “Everyone wins!”

Device Pitstop sells the top brands of tech devices like laptops, tablets, smartphones, and more. Customers get certified, pre-owned devices at affordable prices with a warranty. Device Pitstop also pays cash-on-the-spot for used devices and members of the Pit Crew offer repairs and upgrades quickly, for less.

Device Pitstop minimizes the impact of technology on the environment by reusing devices and various parts where we can and recycling what can’t be repaired or reused. Conveniently located just off I-94 and Weaver Lake Road in Maple Grove.
