phone recycling is becoming more and more critical for our environment.

phone recycling program?
you have old cell phones lying around your home or office?
Do you have old phones that are
in reasonably good condition
so you've hesitated throwing them out, because, after all, they work
fine and you figure one day you or a friend might want them?
like me, you've got old phones just sitting around. You
upgrade your phone when a new cooler phone
comes out for a good price, or a friend or family gives you a new phone
as a gift. You're so excited about your new gadget that cell
phone recycling doesn't cross your mind!
Many of the phones I have are old enough
(or at least not
state of the
art enough!) that my friends and family aren't interested in using
them. So, for the longest time they've just sat around in
a box - too good to simply throw in the trash, and too old to
appeal to me to use. Or maybe you have old phones that just
anymore, and something within you knows that you
shouldn't just throw them in the
trash. But on the other hand, you never seem to have the time
to find a cell phone recycling program?

only on cell phones and iPods, which must be in good working condition.
While they don't pay for shipping the phone to them, they
offer very good value. Just select your phone make and model

much it's worth.
The most important piece of advice is
to check the site
immediately upon having a phone you no longer want. They're
constantly changing the prices as new phones come out. I saw
a phone I wanted to sell drop
from $150 to $75 in a matter of a few weeks (fortunately I sold it at
amount!). Some phones aren't
worth anything at all if they're just too old. So check the site
and act quickly as soon as you're ready to part with it. I
was a little hesitant at first because I was worried that I'd
send in my phone and never see the money or phone again. So I
waited for a friend of mine to try it, and after he had no problems, I
tried it, and now I'm a believer!
recommend checking both Gazelle

better offer. They say "Get Green, Be Green"...I like it!
