Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) September 12, 2004
Goodwill Industries of Forth Worth and RMS Communications Group Inc. of Ocala, Fla., a recycler of old cellular telephones, announced today that they will partner to collect old cell phones and turn them into cash.
Under the agreement, Goodwill Industries of Forth Worth will accept the donations of any and all old cell phones at their nine Fort Worth locations. RMS Communications Group Inc. will pay between $1 and $70 for each useable phone, and will carefully recycle and dispose of unusable phones.
Usable phones will be refurbished by RMS and may be resold in such places as South America; some other phones may be donated by RMS to domestic violence shelters, senior centers or other worthwhile organizations.
David Cox, director of retail sales and marketing for Goodwill Industries of Forth Worth, said area people had been asking if Goodwill would accept donated cell phones.
ÂWe noticed that local people had an interest in finding ways of disposing of the cell phones that they were no longer using,Â Cox said. ÂWe were delighted to find that RMS offers such a useful -- and responsible -- plan for recycling old cell phones.
ÂThis new partnership will keep old cell phones out of landfills, where they can cause environmental damage,Â said James Mosieur, chief executive officer of RMS Communications Group. ÂPlus, it will generate revenue that will support GoodwillÂs programs and mission.Â
