'Tis the Season to Recycle Old Wireless Phones
holiday season, many consumers rang in the holidays with new wireless
phones. Rather than throwing old phones into a drawer or into the
trash, Verizon Wireless reminds consumers to donate their
no-longer-used wireless phones to the company's HopeLine(R) phone
recycling program to support victims of domestic violence.
HopeLine collects no-longer-used wireless phones, batteries and
accessories in any condition, from any wireless service provider, at
the company's Communications Stores across the country. Phones that can
be refurbished are sold for reuse and those without value are disposed
of in an environmentally sound way. Proceeds from the HopeLine program
are used to provide wireless phones and cash grants to local shelters
and other non-profit organizations that focus on domestic violence
prevention and awareness.
