Recycling Old Mobile Phones

Upgrading your cell phone? If so, you probably won’t need the old one any more. Don't discard it!  By recycling your phone you're keeping your old phone out of a landfill. Environmental research organizations estimate that some 130 million cell phones are discarded annually, amounting to 65,000 tons of trash. The batteries and printed circuits inside each phone contain nickel, cadmium, and other toxic elements. 

There are a number of options to recycle outdated mobile phones.
