You know it’s important to recycle used and unwanted electronics, but you haven’t stepped up to the plate yet. Don’t be too ashamed, you’re not alone. Despite today’s plethora of recycling programs and awareness initiatives, there are still many people who don’t recycle. Just how many? While most (77 percent) American adults recycle something in their own home, 23 percent recycle nothing at all, according to the results of a 2007 survey published by Harris Interactive.
According to the survey, one of the main reasons why people don’t recycle is because it takes too much effort. Another reason is because it is not available in their area. However, recycling programs are becoming more convenient than ever, making it extremely difficult for the remaining 23 percent of the U.S. adult population to come up with more excuses, especially when it comes to used electronics such as cell phones.
Sell Cell, a popular cell phone price comparison site, is helping people recycle their cell phones and receive cash for their efforts — sell phone . Using a simple search feature, users can look up their unwanted cell phones and then select the best deal from all the top phone buyers and recycling programs. The final steps involve mailing in the cell phone and waiting for the check to arrive in the mail. It’s that easy.
Recycling your old cell phone not only provides you with some much-needed cash, but also conserves natural resources and reduces waste, pollution and the demand for energy. No more excuses!
