Want to recycle your camera? Read our guide to recycling your camera for cash…

You’ve heard all about recycling your mobile phone right?  Several companies now allow you to recycle cameras too! Why not do your bit for the environment and earn a bit of cash at the same time.Recycle Camera

  • Don’t just throw your old camera into the bin. This causes harm to the environment around you, and also wastes the opportunity for making yourself some cash.
  • Beware – not all companies take all makes and models of camera. Check the company you chosen carefully to ensure they will take your camera AND pay you for it.
  • Check the condition, known as the ‘grade’, of your camera before checking for the best price – i.e. Working or Non-Working.

  1. Hi Caz

    I’ve had a look around and I can’t find anyone who recycles that model I’m afraid. Is it a camera body or a camera accessory?

    Even if the recycling companies don’t recycle it. You could always sell it on eBay.


  2. hi i can’t find the model that i need to recycle. It is Pentax camera (film) and please advise me to find the right company.

    Thank you


  3. I have 2 x Kodak Z730 cameras with docking stations and rechargable batteries and holders both are working fine is there an outlet for these cameras also a canon sureshot ?

  4. Hi Adrian

    Simply Drop recycle the Z730 – but I would advise selling any peripherals on eBay as they will only be interested in the camera itself.
    I’ve had less joy with the Sureshot – could you dig out the model number? It will probably be on the battery door of the camera.



  5. Hi,

    I have a Casio Exilim EX-Z80 that I want to recycle.
    Can you please advise?
    Thank you.


  6. Hi Fiona

    I’ve had a look around and I can’t find any companies offering to recycle the Casio Exilim EX-Z80 at the moment. I would recommend selling it on eBay instead, even if it’s broken (although you obviously need to mention this!) as someone may be interested in buying it to use, to fix or for spare parts.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!

    Merry Christmas


  7. I have the following non- working items items that I would like to recycle but have been unable to find the models. Please can you help.

    Minolta 160 Riva Zoom (Film)
    Canon Powershot SE

    I also have a Dell inspiron 1525 that is working but has a screen that is working but falling off.
    Thank you

  8. I have a Pentax 110 camera with lenses and I wonder where I could recycle it. Please advise.

  9. Hi Judith

    Unfortunately no recycling companies are offering to recycle this product at present. I would advise you to advertise the product on eBay instead in order to get some money back. If the camera is no longer working you may find a buyer who will want it for spares or repair.

    Sorry we couldn’t help on this occasion.


  10. i have a super fuji cam 8mp and a vivitar 3105s 3.2 mp both working have they any value?
    many thanks. G Hatch

  11. I have a Nikon Coolpix s8200 with a broken lense. Have the box , manual and all accessories that came with the camera. I would like to recycle it but can not find anyone to match this camera. Can you advise.

  12. This web page is insane.

    You say to ‘simply use our free and impartial Camera recycling price comparison tool below’ in order to to compare camera recycling prices from differing companies…

    However, the first of the three questions on your ‘comparison tool ‘asks for ‘type’, but nowhere amongst the list of gadget categories offered is a section that deals with cameras. Everything else but.

    You cannot enter the make or model until you have selected this ‘type’ category.

    So why pretend to deal with cameras if you don’t? Why does this page even exist?

  13. Sorry Justin but our ‘free comparison service’ is subject to what’s available from the recyclers out there. Sometimes they offer cameras, and sometimes they don’t, so we can’t guarantee you will find a deal all of the time. This free to use website has been live for many years and we don’t intend removing a page if there is a temporary lack of recycling deals.
