A new ATM-like device allows instant recycling- and payouts- for old cell phones.
The Eco-ATM has simple operation. You simply enter the make and model of your hone, and get a rough price estimate. Then, plug in the phone to run diagnostics and get a final price. After that, you can simply insert the phone and get your money. You can also have your money donated to charity.
It's a faster option than electronics recycling web sites. With those, you send in your cell phone, then get a check back by mail.
There are also local options for recycling electronics- but most are centered more on responsible disposal, rather than paying for old devices.
