(BPT) - Although most Americans know that a variety of items around the house, such as clothes and jewelry, can quickly translate into cash, many don’t realize they’re wasting space and leaving money on the table by hoarding their old electronic devices. Younger device owners (18-49 years old) may be the worst offenders, according to a recent survey from ecoATM, the nationwide network of automated electronics recycling kiosks. They are more likely than their older counterparts (those older than 50) to be guilty of stockpiling obsolete smartphones (25 percent versus 9 percent) and tablets (13 percent versus 5 percent).
