Recycle for Money | Items to Sell for Quick Cash

Spring cleaning is just around the corner, and that means hundreds of households getting rid of things they no longer need.

Our customers have gotten smart when it comes to their spring cleaning – they make money while doing it!

Recycling household items is a quick and easy way to generate fast cash. Let us show you how.

How to recycle for money

A simple 1-2-3 step process allows you to get from point A, collecting the items to sell, to point B, recycling for money on the spot.

Step one: After cleaning and organizing, determine what you’d like to sell and recycle, donate, or keep. If you’re stumped and want to know what to recycle for money, we made a list of some of the best, highest priced items below!

Step two: Get your items to their highest selling point by cleaning them up, repackaging/repacking, etc. This includes gathering any accessories, plugs, and certificates of authenticity. Letting us review your items in their best condition will enable us to give you the most amount of money possible in return.

Step three: Locate a nearby pawn shop of ours to head to. Don’t worry, we have pawn shops in West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Miami, Orlando, you name it.  

By following the above steps, you’ll be recycling in Florida in no time!

Items you can recycle for money

If you’ve been searching ‘what can you recycle for money?’ then you’ve come to the right place! Rather than spending time collecting aluminum cans to recycle and sell for a small amount of money, focus on the bigger, more profitable items that can provide you with more cash faster.

  1. Electronics

Electronics can include just about anything that plugs into the wall or another device! This means selling your TV, chargers and adapters, GPS systems, iPads, and more.

Tip: We will happily take the electronic so long as it still functions properly and looks of quality. Have questions about an electronic you’re considering bringing to us? Just give us a call!

  1. Sporting equipment

Outgrown your childhood bike or upgraded to a new mountain bike recently? Bring us your old bicycle!

  1. Computers & laptops

Upgrading for work or personal preferences? No worries, we’ll take care of the old ones for you.

Tip: Grab an inexpensive flash drive to download any data you may need.

  1. Car parts

We know it’s not the easiest to transport car parts, but leaving items like rims, car stereos, and other sound systems with us for cash most definitely beats dropping it off at a scrap yard for zero cash or worse, getting hit with a drop off fee.

  1. Gold and silver, including scrap gold and gold coins

We are a pawn shop that buys gold and silver! This also includes scrap gold and gold coins. Although our pawn shop scrap gold prices and other gold item prices fluctuate to match the standard price of gold, we always work to give you the most money for your valuable pieces.

Tip: Remember you are not locked into anything by coming in and showing us your items. We want you to hold on to grandma’s gold coins if you want to wait.  

  1. Jewelry
Recycle your gold chains with us, or count on us having some for purchase in one of our 14 locations!

Choosing to recycle old jewelry is a great idea for some side money. The jewelry pieces may no longer be your favorite, but they will be the next person’s treasures.

Tip: You do not need to clean up your jewelry pieces before bringing them in. Surprising? Our state-of-the-art technology will be able to identify the purity regardless of whether it is dirty or broken, or not. It is still valuable and we can still give you the best offer possible!

  1. Gaming consoles

How can families keep up with the insane demand (and prices) of the latest and greatest gaming consoles? Another one is introduced every year!

At Queen of Pawns, we keep things affordable. By selling your old game console to us, you’ll be recycling for money AND recycling for a family. Helping people is what we are all about at Queen of Pawns!

  1. Power tools

Moving and downsizing? Hire a new landscaper? Get rid of those power tools clogging up space in your garage and make some quick cash for them!

Tip: The power tool must still work for us to take it, so be sure to plug it in and crank it up before heading to us.

  1. Musical Instruments

Let the next person make some music. Instruments are one of our best sellers, so we’d love to give you cash for anything you no longer play or need. We’re thinking of you, parents of children in band class!

Our customers also ask

What’s the best thing to recycle for money?

We think gold, diamonds, coins, and luxury watches are the best to recycle for money. Also consider electronics or scroll above for our best list of items.

Can I make money from recycling?

Absolutely! It’s a great form of quick side income!

Is recycling a good side hustle?

It doesn’t take much time and isn’t difficult. Making a business with neighbors

What brings the most money scrapping?

Gold, diamonds, coins, and luxury watches!

Help us celebrate our 28 year anniversary and Global Recycling Day at our pawn shop in Lake Worth. We’ve got lots of great things for shop, and plenty of room for you to bring your items to pawn and recycle, or sell and recycle. Let’s make a difference together!
