The click wheel stopped working, rendering the iPod useless. I read on Ifixit that the cause might be a swollen battery(old).
I opened the unit using Ifixit instructions. With the pressure relieved, the unit worked fine. I ordered a new battery from Ifixit and installed it. Now the iPod is as good as new again.
The best form of recycling is to repair and keep products in working order.
