Cell Phone and Smart Phone Recycling and Disposition

According to the EPA, less than 20 percent of unwanted cell phones are recycled each year. Cellular phones and chargers contain lead, mercury and cadmium, toxic metals that can end up in food and water sources if thrown away.

Comprenew accepts all brands of cellular phones brands and carrier devices for recycling and refurbishing. Devices include phones, iPads and tablets, e-readers, AppleAndroid watches, and other cellular devices.

We’ll help you dispose of your cell phones, smart phones, and other cellular devices in a secure, environmentally friendly way. We make it easy to do the right thing.

Comprenew prioritizes refurbishment over recycling whenever possible. When refurbishment of cell phones and other cellular devices is not feasible, we disassemble these phones and cellular devices and route recoverable components so they can be reused or converted into raw materials again.

We properly destroy all data, either through complete shredding of data devices into small pieces or by removing device data using leading industry practices for media sanitization (NIST 800-88.) certificates of data destruction and audit reports are available.

So take your old, outdated, or obsolete cell phones, smart phones, iPhones, and other cellular devices to one of our drop-off locations—or click the button to schedule a pick-up.

Comprenew also offers full-service IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) through its Secure Asset Technology Disposition services.
