Virgin Mobile USA today announced that all new phones will come with a recycling envelope in the box. Virgin partnered with ReCellular to provide a prepaid recycling envelope that subscribers can use to return an old phone, or their new phone when it is eventually replaced. Phones can be dropped off at a number of retail stores with ReCellular drop boxes or shipped to the company for free. ReCellular will refurbish the phones and then sell or donate the working handsets. Virgin and ReCellular will donate all profits from selling the recycled handsets to groups that help homeless youth. Most major carriers will recycle old handsets at their retail locations and donate profits to charity, however they have not included recycling materials in their packaging.
