Bluetooth? iPhone? Don't just ditch the old phone
By Trystan L. Bass
Is it time for a new mobile phone? Or perhaps you just want a new iPhone when it goes on sale.
Whatever the need for another mobile, make sure to take proper care of your old handset before you start chattering away on your new one.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), less than 20% of all cell phones are recycled each year, even though they're full of precious metals, copper, and plastics.
Recycling also saves energy. If America's 100 million outdated mobile phones were recycled instead of junked, that would save enough energy to power more than 194,000 U.S. households with electricity for one year. Even recycling 1 million mobile phones can reduce greenhouse gas emissions equal to taking 1,368 cars off the road for a year.
So how do you recycle a phone? It's not that hard:
• Start with your phone's retailer or manufacturer. Sometimes you can drop off the old phone at the store.
• Give it to any manufacturer. Apple, Motorola, and Nokia are among the companies that will accept any phone for recycling, not just the ones they make themselves. And they'll recycle phones for free.
• Donate the phone to charity. If your old phone isn't broken, send it to an organization, which uses phones to help survivors of domestic violence
• Look for a drop-off site near you.
Enjoy your new mobile (safely, if you're on the road). And keep the old one out of the landfill.
