Cell Phone Recycling Program
During the Earth Day Celebration, GA Tech students, faculty, staff andvisitors can recycle their personal cell phones.
Used cell phones are recycled at our E-Waste area during Earth Day. Our partner, Atlanta Recycling Solutions, handles the removal and processing of cell phones so they do not end up in the landfill.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that there are 100 to 130 million cellular phones that are no longer in use. The EPA estimates that if these phones were recycled we could save enough upstream energy to power 194,000 U.S. households for one year. However, less than 20% of all unwanted cell phones are recyled because many people do not know how or where to recycle them.
