Recycle Old Cell Phones for Cash
A secret that is beginning to come to light is the fact that cell phones can be recycled; and many scrap metal recycling companies pay cash for new or used electronic devices. On top of cell phones, these companies generally accept other forms of electronic devices, including modems, PDA’s, tablets, pagers, cameras, lap tops, gaming devices, GPS systems, electrical wiring, circuit boards, and much more.
There are several components within a standard cellular phone that can be recycled and reused. For example, cell phones contain various metals that can and should be recycled. These components can then be used in repairing or refurbishing existing phones, or melted down and used as something entirely different.
Other than doing something good for the environment, a used cell phone is generally worth some cash too. Depending on the make, model, and condition of the device or phone, you can get anywhere from 5 to 100 dollars, and sometimes more. It all depends on several factors, including the terms of the vendor, the condition of the device, the degree of valuable metal it contains, and more.
