Kyocera Phone Recycling Program to Benefit Soldiers
Mar 25, 2015, 10:48 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Kyocera today launched a nationwide 'Take Back' phone recycling program that will provide calling services to deployed military personnel. Kyocera partnered with SecondWave Recycling to handle the logistics. SecondWave breaks phones down and responsibly recycles their raw materials. For every four phones recycled, Kyocera will donate $1 to the Cell Phones for Soldiers program, which gives active-duty military personnel and veterans free communications services when abroad. The $1 donation provides 30 minutes of long-distance calling time. Kyocera says only 13% of cell phones are recycled, with the remainder going to landfills or incinerators. The Take Back program will accept any phone, working or not. People interested in recycling their phones can print free shipping labels from Kyocera, which will also provide shipping containers if necessary.
