Should I recycle my old cell phone? Follow

Yes, you should recycle your old cell phone, PDA, cell phone batteries, chargers, and other accessories. Cell phones and accessories are made from valuable resources such as precious metals, copper, and plastics - all of which require energy to extract and manufacture. Recycling cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions, keeps valuable material out of landfills and incinerators, and conserves natural resources. Many of the major cell phone retailers (both cell phone stores and big box retailers) will take back your old cell phone to recycle. Drop off locations for cell phones.
