Over 1 BILLION CELL PHONES are produced every year worldwide, and the numbers are growing.
The average lifespan of a cell phone is less than 18 months, which would average out to 34 PHONES DURING A LIFETIME if you purchased your first phone starting at the age of 18.
In the United States there are more cell phones than people - an estimated 500 million cell phones have been retired and 100 million more are replaced every year.
Of the 50 million cell phones replaced every month worldwide, only 10% are recycled.
The other 90% either languish in drawers or end up in toxic landfills.
This triggers a chain of toxic and devastating events, seeping hazardous elements into groundwater including Arsenic, Bromine, Cadmium, Mercury and Lead. In fact, if we recycled just a million cell phones, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions equal to taking 1,368 cars off the road for a year.
We hope to give you the opportunity to get rid of your phones the right way. Although we cannot eliminate e-waste, we offer you the chance to extend the life cycle of your old phones.
Our goal is to be as environmentally sound as we can be and that means giving as many phones as we can a second or third life
We find new homes for your loved old phones or use the working parts from broken handsets to create new, fully functioning units.
However, some phones are beyond repair. For those phones that cannot be re-used we make sure that they are recycled responsibly.
Approximately 80% of the materials in cell phones can be recycled. When a phone is recycled it can provide enough raw materials for a new phone, without the need for mining.
For every million cell phones we recycle, 35,274 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered.
Did you know that while more than 80% of cellphone material is recyclable, worldwide only 10% is recycled annually? In the U.S. alone cellphones outnumber people. E-waste is a huge problem but also a huge opportunity for improvement. Recycle even your valueless phones with ExchangeMyPhone for free and help us eliminate E-waste, one cell phone at a time.
