RE: [greenyes] Charitable Recycling of used cell phones has proved lucrative for charities
Hello Johnnie,

When you say "recycled", do you mean "reused"?  Do you have any idea how
many, if any, of the phones that are collected are REUSED?  Are some of the
components reused?  What do you mean by "properly disposed of"?  Are cell
phones considered "hazardous" waste?

thanks,

Pat Franklin

Charitable Recycling, in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan has an innovative
program whereby fundraisers and charities can send in their used cell phones
in exchange for a donation back to them.  This keeps the used cell phones
out of the landfills where they are toxic to the earth, and helps many
fundraising endeavors.

There are no administrative costs, no time limits, and no contracts.  All
phones are accepted irregardless of age or condition or workability. They
are accepted individually or by the pallet.

Phones that can be recycled will be.  Those that cannot will be disposed of
properly.
