The EPA has launched a program to make people more aware of how to recycle their cell phones instead of just throwing them away. According to the EPA, only 10% of people who dispose of cell phones recycle them. By making people aware that recycling a cell phone is as easy as taking it to pretty much any big box store or phone retailer, it will be easier to keep phones out of landfills.
Perhaps there is not enough awareness about e-waste recycling programs, but the U.S. Postal Service has a free e-waste recycling program in which no postage is required for you to send your electronic waste to be recycled.
My favorite programs are the ones that donate used cell phones to senior citizens, victims of domestic violence, or other people who have a particular need. Some cell phone companies include a free pre-paid mailer with new phone shipments that you can use to donate your old phone.
