Our mission is to create sustainable and successful electronics trade-in and EOL recycling programs for carriers, non-profits and businesses. In 2012, approximately 15 pounds of used electronics were generated per capita worldwide – but less than 20% were recycled.* The faster we can get those used electronics back into use – or recycled the right way – the better it is for all of us. That means higher profits for carriers. More fundraising options for non-profits. More data protection for corporations. And it’s pretty awesome for Earth too. (Source: SERI 2014)
You need serious capacity to handle 1,100 makes and models of cell phones and over 5,000 different types of out-of-date electronics. Cellular Recycler has built a ground up infrastructure in Boulder, Colorado. We’re proud to have kept an estimated 9 million phones and over 32 million accessories out of landfills.
We hold the R2/RIOS certification, which ensures our testing, training, data clearing, inventory, and quality control exceed industry standards. Every certified R2 recycler is rigorously audited by an independent third-party in more than 50 areas of operational and environmental performance. R2/RIOS also ensures that each handset, hard drive and SD card is data cleared to the NIST’s special publication 800-88 guidelines for media sanitation.
At Cellular Recycler, we care about: Data security for devices that hold personal memory. Environmental practices involving worker safety and materials handling. Proper e-waste disposal of material to licensed and permitted facilities. Remarketing and reuse by testing key functions and maximizing resale value. We commit our time and resources to make sure your customers, employees and supporters are meeting your environmental objectives.
