Cameras can be recycled for cash, but they can also be traded in for other items depending on where the trade is being made. To recycle a used camera, it is necessary to find a site or location that accepts used cameras for recycling.
The next step is to determine whether the recycler is accepting the make and model of the camera, because some locations do not accept older cameras for money. A used camera is likely to be tradeable for cash only if it is in working condition. A working camera has the highest resale value and therefore usually commands a premium price when being recycled.
