Cellphone Recycling - T-Mobile

We recently upgraded our cellphone through our service provider (T-Mobile). Included with the package are envelopes (shown below) for cellphone recycling or eCycling (electronic recycling).

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, "Recycling cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions, keeps valuable material out of landfills and incinerators, and conserves natural resources. Recycling just a million cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions equal to taking 1,368 cars off the road for a year."

Here's an informative video about cellphone recycling.



If you have no other use for your old cellphone, you can either drop it off at eCycling stations or mail it in at no cost to you. For more details about the drop off center locations or where to mail them, please visit the US EPA website.

nice very interesting and innovative post on mobile phone recycling i must say going green is the order of the day and every individual should do that and i would also like to add that There is an effective way of reusing this phone. You can donate this device to a local charity, especially a woman's shelter. These women really need these communicative devices. It is one of the independent and safe forms of communication. The distressed and abused women find it easy to contact ambulance service, police or loved ones with the help of these devices. If you have planned to recycle your phone, you can select this recycling option. You can recycle Nokia 6300 easily.
