AT&T Launches Cell Phone Recycling Initiative

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

AT&T has begun to recycle cell phones in full force.  They have implemented recycling in their stores, online, and through their customer programs.  In order to ensure that the donation process is extremely easy for people, AT&T will have designated drop-off areas at each store location throughout the United States and will offer free prepaid shipping labels online.

AT&T has partnered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on this initiative.  Matt Hale, Director of the Office of Resource Conservation and recovery at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states, “We encourage wireless users to do what they can to reuse or recycle old cell phones because they’re made of valuable materials like precious metals, copper, and plastics – all of which require energy to extract and manufacture.”

AT&T encourages you to recycle all cell phones, no matter which wireless provider you have chosen.  They are committed to recycling every type of cell phone because it will have a positive impact on the environment.

Recycling for Charities offers this same type of service.  You can not only recycle your used cell phone but also your used digital camera, iPod, MP3 players, and PDAs.  Click here to donate and give the proceeds to a charity of your choice!!
