Better than the Landfill

Do you know how many cellphones were discarded in the US last year?

Did you guess 130 million cellphones? Many of these cellphones end up in landfills where the lead, mercury and cadmium eventually leach into the soil and groundwater causing contamination problems.

Until the rest of the country catches up with California and its new(ish) legislation regarding recycling of cellphones, it would be best to use CollectiveGood, cell mobile phone recycling to help cut down on the massive pile of useless cellphones. And that would be a good start.
