Where Can I Recycle Old Cell Phones? WCI Weds

recycle used cell phonesWith so many cell phone upgrade options available every 2 years or so, it’s easy to go through cell phones like wildfire.

According to eRecyclingCorps’ co-founder & CEO, David Edmondson, 1.2 billion devices will be sold around the world in 2012, but only 1 percent will be recycled. It’s important to recycle Cell & smart phones since they’re made from precious metals, copper, and plastics which are energy-heavy to mine & manufacture.

Trying to clean out your old cell-phone closet?

Here’s where to recycle old cell phones in Philly:

  • Staples – 1500 Chestnut St or 1300 South Columbus Blvd
  • Radioshack – 1001 Market St #1, 1616 Chestnut St
  • Target – 1 Mifflin St
  • Best Buy – 2300 S Columbus Blvd
