GUEST POST: What to Do With Unwanted Cell Phones: Look at cell phone recycling as a way to address the problem,

Now that we’ve discussed the bad news, there are things that can be done to help prevent this e-waste from ending up in our landfills and eco-system. In 2007 for example, 14 million people recycled their old phones . There are many organizations which exist to take your old, unwanted cell-phones such as charities, government programs, retailers and providers. The EPA has a program called Plug-In To eCycling, which sponsers a “National Cell Phone Recycling Week” every April. Phones that are in working order will often be donated to families in need, or sold for charity at a discounted price. Ones that are broken or in non-working order can be refurbished, recycled and turned into new products, which has the added bonus of saving energy and the resources required to manufacture new phones.
