Cell Phones

Cell Phones!

Illegal in Garbage & Drains

Never throw cell phones in the trash or recycling. Electronics contain chemicals and components that can leach into local waterways, soil, and air.

Special Directions

Curbside Collection
Cell phones may be put into a Ziploc bag and placed on top of your garbage can for curbside collection.

Cell phones can be taken to Eastern Regional Landfill during normal business hours for a fee. From there, they will be sent to a recycling facility, disassembled, and recycled into new products.
