Cell Phone Recycling With FlipSwap

FlipSwap Logo

I’ve become more and more “green” as well as organic as it becomes more affordable and easier to do. I always try to use reusable bags when grocery shopping as well as proper disposal of TVs, monitors and other items.

It’s becoming a lot easier to do so with your cell phones as well.

Trade In Your Cell Phone at FlipSwap

With Flipswap, you get paid to recycle your old cell phone. You can also chose to get gift cards or credit on different websites. It’s fast and they even offer free shipping.

To get started just search your type of phone and see how much money it’s worth. Some people go through plenty of phones each year. I always like to have a back-up phone, but after that you don’t need anymore. Why not trade it in if you aren’t going to use it anymore anyhow?

Trade in your cell phone, be green, earn money or you can always donate the proceeds to your favorite charity.

Why Should You Recycle Your Cell Phone?

After checking out FlipSwap I was wondering exactly why cell phone recycling is so important (besides the obvious).  I found a couple of interesting facts that should make you WANT to recycle your phone.

Cell phones contain myriad toxins such as arsenic, antimony, beryllium, cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, and zinc in their circuit boards. Many of those chemicals can be released into the air or groundwater.

The amount of cell phones retired each year would buy every man woman and child in the United States two double cheeseburgers and a medium coke at McDonalds and $1 change.

In 2008 alone, Flipswap’s program kept the equivalent of 80 tons of solid waste – much of it toxic—out of landfills in the U.S. Help out the cause and even get paid doing so!
