Clean Out Your Drawers

Cellphone Recycling and Environmental Sustainability

Learn about environmental sustainability standards at AT&T. We design products with the environment in mind, and use environmentally safe packaging. AT&T also works to recycle mobile phones that are donated in AT&T recycle bins across the country, and donates all proceeds from recycling efforts to charitable causes. Watch as we show the mobile phone recycling process and learn how you can help AT&T with environmental sustainability efforts at: http://www.att.com/sustainability.

If you’re anything like me, you don’t even start to think about your New Year’s resolution until the ball in Times Square starts to drop. Then, all of a sudden a resolution to take into the New Year seems to be really important. 

So this year I am getting ahead of the curve and making my New Year’s resolutions early.  Today, on December 19, my New Year’s resolutions for 2014 are:  

Spend more time salmon fishing and with my family, read more books and… recycle all of my family’s old cell phones.

Yes, I am guilty of a junk drawer in the kitchen spilling over with cell phones going back to the past millennium.  This leads me to wonder how many old cell phones and devices are sitting in other people’s junk drawer, waiting to be recycled through take-back programs like AT&T’s Trade-In Program.
