The average household has 3-5 unused cell phones laying around that usually end up in the landfill. Here is a perfect opportunity to do a little spring cleaning where the phones will be recycled in support of the cause. Bring them to the event. If you have a large amount let us know and we will arrange to pick them up prior to the event date.
