Recycle that old (unused) cell phone today on National Phone Recycling Day

old-cell-phonesLet’s face it. Almost everyone has at least one old cell phone stuck in a drawer or cabinet somewhere just gathering dust. A lot of us have a few of them – think small flip phones and other such analog devices. As of last 2015, there were roughly 426 million idle or inactive mobile devices in the U.S. Only 100 million would be recycled.

We hang onto them for no good reason other than we forget about them. But why not do something constructive and recycle them?

Today is International Mobile Phone Recycling Day, Rather than continue to let your old cell phones continue to languish in the dark, you could contact Gazelle and the folks at  Gazelle ecoATM and turn your outdated cells into cash.
