Don’t trash your old phone. Phones can be recycled
(but be sure to erase names and numbers in the memory). Staples
and other retailers will take used ones. Some are refurbished and
sold in developing countries; others are used for parts. Other
recycling programs raise funds for charity, resell phones as
alternatives to new ones, or provide phones to the homeless and
victims of domestic violence. For more information on recycling, go to www.charitablerecycling.com.
