Go GREEN and recycle your old cell phones

Perhaps in your spring cleaning this year you came across a drawer full of dusty out-dated, used cell phones. You know the ones that don’t have a camera, the ability to text or even a color screen. My grandmother still has one of those little Nokia devices that were all the rage in the late 90s. Do you remember the screen size on those things? No wonder she still can’t figure out how to use it.

Or maybe you’re just thinking about upgrading to the latest device to hit the market. Did you know the average North American gets a new cell phone every 18 to 24 months?

No matter the reason, in celebration of Earth Day today, we urge you to check out these great cell phone recycling and donation options before you toss that device in the garbage.

RECYCLE Your Old Phone:

Search for recycling centers near you that accept cell phones and other electronics
Find an easy drop-off location in your area that takes old cell phones and used rechargeable batteries

DONTATE Your Old Phone:

Choose a specific charity you want your donation to help
Donate a phone to help the troops call home

It’s easy, it’s free and with all the different options available now, you can help the environment and give back to a cause that means something to you.

And just think, with all the different choices for cell phones and smartphones these days you’ll have that drawer filled back up in no time!
