How to Make Money by Recycling Your Old Cell Phone

List: Posted: 02/16/11

Is your cellphone starting to look a little battered around the edges? Do you have multiple old phones that are doing little more than taking up space or collecting dust?  If so, you may want to consider recycling them.  Don’t take them to the recycle center, however, as believe it or not you can actually trade them in for cash by using a cellphone recycling envelope.

The components in cell phones are notoriously bad for the environment, and many old phones can even be donated to other countries or to people who are less fortunate, but many people never think to recycle.  In order to encourage this, many countries now offer ways to recycle your old phone for money.  In the United States, there is a program and website for a company called Cell for Cash that will recycle your phone AND give you money for it.

So if you have an old cell phone or two in your drawer at home that isn’t doing anything, you may want to think about whether you are willing to recycle it.  You'll be doing a world of good for someone less fortunate with yourself, and having a little extra 'pocket money' from recycling your old phone can help you do good things for yourself - such as helping to pay your current cellphone bill.
