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