  • Instructions for Cell Phone Recycling Program

Based on test results from the
University of Florida and the
California EPA, end-of-life cell
phones are hazardous wastes.  
They contain pesistent
bioaccumulative toxins (PBTs),
the reduction of which by half in
2005 is a goal of the US.  Many
of them contain significant
amounts of lead which leach at
toxic levels or above (
Mobile
Toxic Waste
, BAN, 2004).


All phones collected through our
Cell Phone Recycling Program
will be resold to extend their
useful life, donated to law
enforcement or shelters to
provide emergency
communications or recycled.
