as everybady knows,the unused unused is harmful to animal's health,includind our person,to plants,to the environment. many people change there digital cameras,computers ,or tv sets very frequently,maybe every 1-2years .so there are so many unused products around us.they are very dangerous to us all.i am gald to know some country has realised this many years ago,they deal with these by special organ to avoid vitiating more. but i can not find any such organ around my place until now,almost all my unused product are stored in the basement.i really don't know how to deal with ?? can you tell me how to do??can you share your experiences about that??and how did you deal with that??

Is it harmful for me if I locate them in my drawer? I didn't have these knowledges ever before, so I always sell them if they have worthiness to be purchased. I always just located them in my drawer if they havn't any worthiness because of lazy.

lingzi, First of all, you need to see if these appliances are in working condition or broken. For the workable ones, you may consider selling them on a garage sale or online or some secondhand goods dealers around your area. As for the broken ones, it will be to the scrap yard or scrap collectors. You may also want to give it away to any of your relatives or friends who may need it. It will not be good and useful if you leave these workable items unused for a long period of time as it will expire itself too. Cheers.

lingzi, I am sure that as long as they are workable, it would have its uses. Besides, old fashioned as some may be but some collectors may even want to keep it especially movie or television studios that may need them for props in their filming. Also, wedding studios as well, I remember them asking me for my great grandmother's old classic iron for their props a while back. It is still usable except no one would bother as it uses coal. I am glad that I can be of help and I thank you for the BR here. Hoping all the best as the both of you are trying to settle down in your new place. Take care.
