Cell Phones


Cellphones are considered e-waste. After removing personal data from the device, you can trade it in with the retailer when purchasing a new one, mail it in for recycling or take it to one of the participating retailers in the Call2Recycle national recycling program. 

Some residential waste haulers may offer household hazardous waste or e-waste collection to customers. Check with your hauler for more details.
