Many of you have stored your cellphone somewhere in your apartment. Maybe you don’t awar of the options available for recycling your old phones and devices.This week, the EPA announced an easy cellphone recycling program partnership with key phone device makers and service providers. Through this partnership, there are multiple mail-in and drop-off opportunities to be reborn through cell phone donation, or recycled with care.
When used cellphones are recycled, the component parts- such as plastics and precious metals- can be used in other products. From an environmental Viewpoint it is important to eliminate the need to create a new phone. That’ll eliminate the need to mine new materials, to go through a manufacturing process, and there are markets for the used phones that are viable that allow us to put those phones directly back into an active reuse environment.
Cellphones contain toxic, sometimes hazardous chemicals and components that need to be handled with great care, such as LCD screens, lithium ion and metal hydride batteries, and PVC in components. Because of this manufacturers are maximizing the use of recyclable materials and increasingly designing for recyclability.
