Donating Old Cell Phones
From The Wireless Foundation
If you have an old cell phone, recycling it is a smart idea. Many companies offer credit toward new purchases for turning in retired wireless devices, while other programs benefit a wide range of charities. Recycling and reusing old electronics keeps useful materials out of landfills, saves energy, and can benefit your local community and our planet’s environment.
How can I recycle my wireless phone?
There are many programs around the country that recycle wireless devices: wireless carriers & retailers, electronics manufacturers, charitable organizations, and state and local waste authorities all offer ways to donate or recycle cell phones. Go to the Wireless Foundation for a list of ways to mail in or drop off your wireless devices for recycling. Don’t forget to include your old batteries, chargers, and accessories.
