Earth Day Reminder to Recycle Cell Phones
Apr 21, 2005, 12:28 PM by (staff)
The CTIA and recycling organizations are using Earth Day as an opportunity to remind users to recycle their old, unused mobile phones and other electronic devices. Since it's inception, the CTIA's Call To Protect Program has been able to provide 36,000 phones with service and an additional $3 million in contributions thanks to money raised from donated handsets. Over the holiday season, Phone Scoop ran a Cell Phone Recycling Guide with links to trusted recycling programs. Additional programs and initiatives have launched since then. The CTIA has joined eBay's recycling resource center called Rethink, which now provides options for cell phone resale and recycling. In addition, Collective Good now runs an operation called RIP Mobile which offers perks from music downloads to trendy clothes in exchange for retired mobile phones.
