REUSE or RECYCLE Your Cell Phone

Did you just get a new cell phone and don’t know what to do with the old one? Rather than adding it to your collection of old or unwanted cell phones, don’t toss it, REUSE or RECYCLE it. Before doing so, make sure to:

  • Terminate your service
  • Clear your memory
  • Remove the SIM card, if applicable

    Cell phones should not be thrown out with regular trash that is sent to landfills as they contain toxic materials such as antimony, arsenic, copper, beryllium, cadmium, lead, and zinc, which are harmful to the environment.

    REUSE Your Cell Phone

    reuse

  • Sell it or give it to someone that can not afford a new one
  • Drop it off at your local phone carrier store
  • Donate it to your favorite charitable organization
