How many cell phones have you owned so far? And how many more do you think you will buy? For many people, these numbers are large. The lifespan of a new phone is short and many old phones end up in landfills or just sitting around in junk drawers. There are many reasons and opportunities to recycle unwanted cell phones, however, very few people actually do it. When it’s time for your next upgrade, consider helping the environment by recycling, and you may also help a person in desperate need of a phone get one of their own.
