Cell Phone Users Find Buried Treasure in The 'Golden' State - EcoPhones Proves Old Phones to be a Goldmine for Recycling

Article Editor: Christopher Laird Simmons

DALLAS, TX and SACRAMENTO, CA - November 23, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- According to California State Assembly member Fran Pavley (D), California residents throw away more than 44,000 hazardous old cell phones every day. What most cellular users may not know is that these phones contain precious metals such as gold and silver. EcoPhones, the nation's largest school-based cell phone recycler, plans to help all Californians cash in on this new cellular Gold Rush by offering residents and businesses up to $100 for each old cell phone.

With Governor Schwarzenegger's recently signed California Cell Phone Recycling Act of 2004 not slated to take effect until 2006, initiatives such as the EcoPhones buy back program are already serving to bridge the pollution gap.

Since 2001 EcoPhones' innovative cell phone take-back program has helped more than 600 California schools, churches, charities and community organizations raise much needed funds while helping to protect California's air and water quality. Throughout the U.S., EcoPhones has contributed in excess of $500,000 while recycling more than 50 tons of hazardous cellular waste.

"The irony here is that every time a phone is thrown into a landfill what you're really doing is burying treasure," says Walter Engelbrecht, EcoPhones' Chief Operating Officer. "We estimate that Californians are throwing away nearly $50,000,000.00 a year, maybe more."

Businesses and individuals that wish to start their own cell phone recycling program may contact EcoPhones at (888) Eco-Phones / (888) 326-7466 or online at http://www.EcoPhones.com/California .
