Recycle Your Old Cell Phone

If you are like me, you have a drawer at home with old unused cell phones in it. Don’t throw them away! They are very harmful to the environment. Instead, get a few dollars from them by going to oldcellphone.com.

They will send you appropriate packaging for your phone and pay for the shipping. They then attempt to reuse your old phone—often for charitable purposes.

By the way, if you want to learn more about recycling and disposal alternatives for other stuff ranging from chemicals to computers to used motor oil, visit Earth 911. Enter your zip code and learn about local resources to help you recycle, reuse, or properly dispose of many items that could be damaging to the environment. You have to click quite a few times, digging deeper and deeper into the site to get to a list of resources, but it is easy and intuitive.
