New Cell Phone Recycling Program Reduces Waste and Supports Literacy

A new recycling service that offers as much as $200 for the most recently released cell phone is officially open for business. ExchangeMyPhone.com is a Brooklyn-based business that offers people a quick, convenient and fast way to recycle their cell phone for cash. You can also simply donate your non-working cell phone to be recycled for its parts.

Recycling your cell phone for cash through the ExchangeMyPhone website is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. See how much your cell phone is worth by visiting the Exchange page.
  2. Ship it to ExchangeMyPhone for free. You’ll either get a postage paid envelope or can print out a pre-paid shipping label.
  3. Get  your money either via a check in the mail or through PayPal.

You can send in a single phone or a bulk load of phones, and even start your very own phone drive.

In addition to paying you money and reducing the amount of cell phone waste that ends up in our landfills, the ExchangeMyPhone business also gives back to the community. Its One for One Book Exchange Program donates one book to a local literacy program for every one cell phone that is recycled.

The business was launched by Jeremy Cohen and Katherine Preston in June 2011. They both value the process of recycling and care about the surrounding environment.

If you have an old cell phone to recycle then visit the website and share the gift of literacy with someone today!
