Recycling phones is important because:
- handsets that are still operational will be sold overseas, reducing the demand for new handsets and associated environmental impacts of their manufacture
- the unwanted phones are diverted from landfill
- phones contain valuable materials that can be reused when dismantled.
To protect your data, just perform a factory reset before you drop it in the box.
DROP YOUR OLD PHONE IN THE COLLECTION BOX AT THE LIBRARY!
