Recycle your Cell Phone Here

April 5-11 is National Cell Phone Recycling Week. According to the EPA’s website, if Americans recycled the approximately 130 million cell phones that are disposed of annually, enough energy would be saved to power more than 24,000 homes in a year. Recycling or donating cell phones helps the environment by saving energy and keeping usable materials out of landfills. So drop off your used cell phone at the library today!
