"Gadgets for Cash" is a new program offering Seacoast residents cash for used electronic gadgets and digital equipment.

The trade-in program is a partnership between TradePort USA, of Somersworth, and Idea Greenhouse, of Durham.

Under the arrangement, TradePort will process, sell, and compensate traders who bring items like laptops, MP3 players and cell phones to the Idea Greenhouse, a recently opened business.

Traders can choose to contribute their resale proceeds to the Idea Greenhouse in support of its programming and community-building.

Tradeport resells electronics that may otherwise end up in a landfill, but this is the first time the business has attempted to source items locally. "We think we can find items in our own backyard, either from Durham, UNH students, or the region at large," co-founder Sam Biddle said in a press release.

People can bring items by the Idea Greenhouse on Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or by appointment. Staff will appraise the resale value and arrange for payment.
