Boca Regional Hospital Wants Your Old Cell Phone

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Trying to prove Kermit wrong by showing that it can be easy to be green, Boca Raton Regional Hospital will be collecting used cell phones on Earth Day, April 20th.

According to the hospital, “Boca Raton Regional Hospital will partner with Stericycle using its Sustainable Solutions®, to honor “Earth Day” by collecting and recycling old and used cellular phones. In the recycling process the memory on the phones is destroyed and reusable materials are reclaimed, nothing goes into the landfill. Phones that are high end or have a higher value will be tested to determine functionality and then will be reconditioned and reused with the proceeds benefiting select charities. Cell phones unable to be reconditioned are recycled to recover various metals.”
