A cell phones average life is less than two years.
Cell phones and the accessories contain toxic metals which include arsenic, antimony, beryllium, cadium, and lead. This adds up to a lot of potential hazardous waste in not recycled properly.
There are millions of cell phones that are hanging around in peoples homes and offices because the owners of these cell phones do not know what to do with them.
Here is an idea!
Drop off your working cell phone at the nearest shelter. Shelters will use these cell phones as 911 phones for domestic abuse clients. Also, working cell phones can be sent to developing countries to help bridge the communication divide.
