Cell Phone and Battery Recycling

For every million cellphones that are recycled, 35,274 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered. – E.P.A.
By recycling cell phones, you are helping the environment through landfill reduction, keeping water clean, and reducing the demand for mining of new material and resources necessary to produce phones.
