EPA’s National Cell Phone Recycling Week is Underway
The second annual National Cell Phone Recycling Week began Monday and will continue through Sunday.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has teamed up with several leading names in the cell phone industry, including AT&T, Best Buy, LG Electronics, RecycleBank, Samsung Mobile, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, in order to increase awareness about the importance of cell phone recycling to save energy and conserve natural resources.
The retail partners are part of the EPA’s Plug-In To eCycling program, and will be sponsoring promotional activities across the country to encourage Americans to turn in phones for reuse and recycling. The agency has set up a Web site for the program.
