Big Key Self Storage in Miami is partnering with Florida E-Waste Recycling and Cell Phone for Soldiers to become a one-stop drop-off for all e-waste and old cell phones. The items can be dropped off at the facilitys office during office hours.
Americans will replace an estimated 130 million cell phones this year, with the majority of phones either discarded or stuffed in a drawer, said Mike Newman, vice president of ReCellular. Most people dont realize that the small sacrifice of donating their unwanted phones can have a tremendous benefit for a worthy cause like Cell Phones for Soldiers.
Big Key Self Storage invites community members to help make this world a bit greener. The self-storage company is accepting all e-waste including computers, cameras, cassette payers, CD and DVD players, pagers, fax machines, radios, VCRs, typewriters and other items. TVs will not be accepted.
The facility will also accept cell phones. Cell Phones for Soldiers turns old cell phones into prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas. The phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each donated phone.
