Recycle your Cell Phones

The average length of time a consumer in the US keeps a cell phone is around one year. An alarming 140,000,000 cell phones end up in landfill every year, where they contaminate the earth and water supplies.

Thank You Drayton Valley!

Your generous donations of used cell phones helped us in the 2013 Think Recycle Earth Day Contest! We placed THIRD out of 109 participating organizations across Canada, collecting a total of 551 cell phones during the campaign. Our prize – $250- plus $644 for the cell phones

All acceptable items handed into the Foundation will be sent on to Greentec for recycling. Greentec in turn pays the Foundation a set amount per recycled item.

There are no costs to the Foundation in taking part in the scheme, as even postage costs for sending the items to Greentec are covered.
