Recycling cell phones

2/9/2018 (Permalink)

With income tax refunds coming up, many folks out there may be upgrading their cellphones.  But what to do with the old phone?  Throwing away a cellphone in a traditional landfill is a no-go, as the battery can leech dangerous chemicals into the ground.  Here are some things you can do to get rid of your cellphone and keep the environment safe:

  • Cellphones for Soldiers: This charity gives cellphones to troops overseas so they can call their families.
  • Domestic violence shelters: many places that help women and children from abusive situations accept cell donations. 
  • Recycling for Charities: This organization flips phones and gives the proceeds to a charity of your choosing.
  • ecoATM: this is a kiosk that recycles your phone and pays you for it in some cases.  There is one in the Route 60 Wal-Mart and another in the Barboursville Kroger.
  • Best Buy: If you're simply wishing to get rid of the thing, Best Buy recycles most electronics, including cell phones
