e-cycle

A term used to describe the practice of recycling computers, computer components and other electronics through reusing or donating them until the end of their lifecycle. E-cycling encourages people to reduce, reuse and recycle rather than dispose of these items prematurely when upgrading to newer products. At the end of the electronics' life, people are then encouraged to dispose of the item at an electronics recycler to keep the electronics out of landfills and reduce the amount of electronic waste. May also be written as eCycle or ecycle.

See also e-cycle center.
