Like all things, eventually your electric razor will meet its demise. It might break or maybe you just got a new one. The time will come when it will have outlived its purpose. There are a few simple ways for you to dispose of an electric razor.

Find an online company that accepts electric razors and mail it in.

Drop it off. Community recycling programs like the one in Santa Barbara County accept a wide range of electronic devices. All you have to do is drop off the electric razor and they will take care of it.

Pawn it. If you’ve taken good care of your electric razor and are in need of a few dollars, you might try pawning it. For hygienic purposes, you should replace the heads or the blades. Depending on what size city you live in, you should have no problem locating a pawnshop.
