By Pace Butler Subscribe to RSS | December 17th 2011 | Views:

Did you know that used cellular phones can create a massive 65,000-ton of harmful waste yearly? Every person who owns a cell phone should know where their used items go and how to prevent this problem with toxic products. If improperly disposed, a single phone can pollute land and water sources.

Benefits of Cell Phone Recycling

Because of the continuous development in technology, a cell phone's life span could only be less than a year and a half. It means that we are filling up our landfills with over 125 million phones each year. There isn't any regulation yet on recycling of cell phones that's why less than 1 percent of these devices are either recycled or donated. Aside from donation, one great solution to this problem is sell cell phones for cash program.

Listed below are other great reasons why recycling is necessary:

When you sell cell phones these used phones are refurbished to make them good as new and ship them to developing countries for re-use.

The parts of old cell phones are used to create newer models. This way , there will be lesser need to manufacture new components.

Refurbished cell phones are sold thereby reducing the requirement to manufacture new phones.

Companies paying cash for used cell phones usually support a good cause every time they can sell refurbished phones. Help the Environment and Get Paid

There are several websites which exchange cash when you sell your phone that are used and old. The companies behind this project will refurbish the phone for re-selling. or for charity donation purposes. You might have several phones lying around which are worth some great bucks. The prices that they offer depend on the phone's model and working condition.

How does the system work?

You have to visit a website which offers these services.

Fill out the form with pertinent information such as your name, shipping address, the number of phones that you will sell, the name of the individual organization where the check will be addressed.

They will provide you with a free shipping label that you can print out and use when you ship your items to their company.

Box your cell phone/s and use the pre-paid shipping label to send them out.

Receive the check payment within a week after the company has received your item.

It pays to have your old cell phone recycled. In fact, there are a lot of companies who are willing to pay decent cash for phone if you are only willing to participate and sell your phone. Getting as much as $125 for every phone that you send in isn't bad at all. This value is a good reminder that there an item that can be recycled has a worth.
