Cell Phone Recycling
Cell Phone Recycling, Smart Phone Recycling, Holyoke, Massachusetts
Thanks to the never-ending new models of Androids, Blackberries, and iPhones, it seems like very few of us can hold onto a phone for more than a year or two. Because of this, there’s an ever-increasing supply of old phones that need to be gotten rid of. Instead of holding onto it or just tossing it in the trash, cell phone recycling should be your first option. Any phone including Nokia, Sprint, Sony, T-Mobile, LG, Motorolo, Sony, Verizon, Apple, and any others you can think of, can be recycled. Environmental Integrity offers a range of services to help make cell phone recycling easy and environmentally friendly.
Discarded cell phones account for 65,000 tons of toxic waste every year, improperly disposed cell phones are quite dangerous for the environment. Recycling cell phones helps the environment because it keeps usable materials in use rather than just filling up a landfill — the precious metals, copper and plastics used in PDAs and cell phones are all reusable. Additionally, batteries in cell phones can have harmful materials like mercury, cadmium, or lead that are dangerous for the environment and recycling them ensures that none of those hazardous metals or chemicals can negatively impact people.
Even more importantly for your bottom line and ROI, as part of our asset management and remarketing program, many cell phones can be sold to others who need them. Before we sell any cell phone, or anything that can carry data, we put it through a detailed, Department of Defense level data destruction protocol that will prevent anyone from being able to access any personal or confidential information. Most mobile phones and accessories can be repaired or reused and safe parts of old or broken phones can be used in the manufacture of new phones. Any profits made from selling the phones can be used as you wish or working phones can be given back to be donated to the charity of your choice.
Any phones that don’t work will be run through our 100 horsepower hammermill shredder which will both pulverize and shred them, resulting in total data and material destruction. The metals and plastics from the cell phone will then be recycled.
For your convenience we set up Secure Drop of Locations based on the customers needs and can have routine scheduled pick ups.
