Give American service members and veterans a lifeline and our planet new life by recycling your used mobile devices and tablets

recycle cell phoneThis November 15, AMERICA RECYCLES DAY, your donation of a gently used cell phone, smart phone or tablet works to increase the quality of life of American troops and veterans, and the state of our environment.

The U.S Environmental Protection Agency reports indicate e-waste is the fastest growing waste in the United States, and little more than 12% of E-waste is getting recycled.

We can change that this November 15, AMERICAN RECYCLES DAY.

Your powerful donation on this special day (and every day) of a gently used cell phone, smart phone or tablet to Cell Phones For Soldiers does triple duty: it decreases e-waste, increases conservation of precious metals and ensures a better quality of life for U.S. service members and returning veterans.

When you give, you reconnect troops and returning service men and women to their loved ones and their lives with talk time and emergency aid.

Your precious aid is literal, as well: according to the EPA, “Experts estimate that recycling 1 million cell phones can recover and conserve about 50 pounds of gold, 550 pounds of silver, 20 pounds of palladium, and more than 20,000 pounds of copper.”

Additionally, almost all parts of a mobile phone can recycled, saving the exploitation of natural resources for making new ones. The recycling and refurbishing processes consume less energy than new production and thus add directly to energy-saving measures. And careful processing of discarded mobile phones protects the environment from getting polluted.

Donate your tax-deductible mobile device or tablet, funds or give through our iPhone Buyback Program and rest assured knowing your generous donation is doing the necessary hard work to recycle valuable technology, reclaim valuable precious metals and reinvigorate the spirits of invaluable American heroes who appreciate your assistance each and every day.
