As soon as an electric appliance breaks down or goes discarded, it is either thrown in the junk or is used for some totally non electronic purpose. Here is an interesting DIY post by Sreekesh which details with making out a night lamp using the same used electric parts which are not used anymore.
The lamp is based on solar energy, i.e. one can charge the lamp in the daytime and get the output in the night, thus making the usage totally free. Moreover, if one makes the lamp from as many recycled materials, he can get the lamp done in quite low costs. Such prototypes can do a lot good in those areas where people cannot afford electricity at night.
Recycled materials come in use when the chassis and switches of the lamp is made. If you are lucky enough with garage sales, you might find the internal circuit in the junk too. In this blog post, there is combination of new and used stuff, which is definitely as per availability of the stuff Sreekesh needed. Putting up more creativity on the project, one can compactize the gadget and gear up for some interesting experiences.
