Every 2 years or less most of us get a new cell phone. How many of us recycle our old cell phones or do we just throw them in a drawer?
Recycling our old cell phones help keep toxins out of our water and soil supply. Our old cell phones usually end up in our landfills. They contain toxic materials such as mercury in the crystal displays and lead, nickel and cadmium in the circuit boards and batteries. The EPA has found that only 10% are recycled.
Do your part today and recycle your old cell phone at your local phone dealership, or donate to a charity.
