As you said, everybody owns the technology, but not everyone knows how to dispose of it. There are some companies that recycle technology. They collect gold or platinum plated parts, rare metals, etc. and sell them to manufacturers. However, a regular person will earn nothing if he brings two phones to the recycling company. On the other hand, mass technology collectors such as IT companies, cinemas, gaming playrooms, and telecommunication companies can earn decent money by selling the tech to the recycling companies.
Therefore, I propose leasing (renting) technology. You pay a certain amount of money to "rent" a laptop, smartphone, earphones, TV or any other technology. You can choose customer-suited packages with everything you need, including unlimited internet, calls, TV packages, etc. Nothing is yours, you just use it. Any time, you can get new offers to choose from, take new devices, upgrade your packages, etc. If you lose a device, you pay a certain fee and get a new one (but also enter their register of "losers" :D). When you want to change a device, you just give it back to the company and sign a contract for a new one. The old phone, laptop or TV goes to a storage, gets refurbished and "rented" by other people, or gets sold to the recycling companies in bulk.
