100% of the materials in your phone can be recovered and used to make new products or generate energy. But, according to our latest study, only 9% of people recycle their old phones even though they’d be far better off recycled.

What’s that all about? Hanging on to your dear old handset? You’re not alone. Research shows about 44% of unused mobile devices are sitting around in the bottom of drawers.

Take our three steps to recycling and see how easy it is to give your old phone a new life.
