Video doorbells have become increasingly popular for home security and convenience. But what should you do with your old video doorbell when it's time for an upgrade? Here are some responsible methods to avoid sending it to the landfill:

  • Reuse: If your old video doorbell is still in good working condition, consider reusing it in another part of your home or giving it to a friend or family member who could use it.
  • Donate: Many organizations and charities accept used electronics, including video doorbells. Check with local schools, community centers, or non-profit organizations to see if they could benefit from your old device.
  • Recycle: If your video doorbell is no longer functional or cannot be reused, it's important to recycle it properly. Look for electronic recycling centers or drop-off locations in your area that accept small electronics like video doorbells. These centers will ensure that the device is recycled responsibly and its components are properly disposed of.

Remember, video doorbells may contain hazardous materials such as batteries or electronic components. It's important to handle them with care and dispose of them responsibly to protect the environment and prevent any potential safety risks.
