Donating/Recycling Old Wireless Phones

Upgrading your cell phone? If so, you probably won’t need the old one any more. Don't discard it - there are better alternatives. Consider donating your old (working) cell phone to an organization that collects used cell phones for charitable purposes. Please consult American CellPhoneDrive.org. For information about recycling your old cell phone, please consult United States Environmental Protection Agency.

By donating or recycling your phone you're keeping your old phone out of a landfill. Environmental research organizations estimate that some 130 million cell phones are discarded annually, amounting to 65,000 tons of trash. The batteries and printed circuits inside each phone contain nickel, cadmium, and other toxic elements.
