The Environmental Protection Agency took to the air this morning at KYW 1060 AM in Philadelphia to bring awareness to National Cell Phone Recycling Week. EPA spokesperson Doinna Heron said that only 10% of cell phones are recycled each year because most people don't know where to send them. Many of the wireless network operators -- including Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless -- will accept old phones at their retail locations, as will big box electronic retailers such as Staples and Office Depot. If you have old and unused phones laying around, the EPA encourages you to recycle them, as many of the internal components can be reused.
