If you've got some old gadgets lying around your home, eBay Instant Sale provides a quick and easy way to recycle your unwanted electronics (for free!) or sell them for cash instantly without having to setup an online auction. Find out how, after the jump.

Last week eBay launched eBay Instant Sale, which gives eBay-ers a convenient way to sell their electronics or recycle them for free. Eligible gadgets include laptops, phones, PDAs, cameras, mp3 players, and more. Simply type in the name, make, and model of your device, answer a couple questions about the item's condition, and you'll instantly receive a cash offer. An example below:

Once the offer is accepted, you'll get a free shipping label to ship the device out. You can expect to get paid (via Paypal) soon after your item ships and the condition its in is verified.

Even if your used gadget has zero-value, eBay provides a free shipping label so you can send in your device and have it properly recycled—all you need to do is simply drop it in the mailbox. It's a super convenient solution for those who don't know how or where to recycle their electronics, and sure beats simply throwing your old gadgets in the dumpster.
