Ocala, FL (PRWEB) November 12, 2004
RMS Communications Group Inc., a successful re-marketer and recycler of used cell phones, announced today it has opened a Cell For Cash kiosk at the Ocean City Mall in Toms River, N.J.
The kiosk is owned and operated by an independent RMS agent, Pat Lynch. It is open during regular mall hours and is located close to the mallÂs food court.
Cell for Cash pays cash for used cell phones that would otherwise lay idle or end up in landfills. Cell phones contain hazardous substances and should never be simply thrown away. California recently passed legislation, effective in 2006, making it mandatory to recycle cell phones. Several other states, including New Jersey, are looking at the problem as consumers frequently upgrade their phones.
Many non-profits can benefit by collecting cell phones as a fundraiser. People who canÂt visit the kiosk can sell their phones online at the RMS website Â http://www.cellforcash.com,.
ÂKiosks such as the one at Ocean City Mall offer another opportunity for us to attract the attention of the many people who may have old cell phones that they no longer use,Â said James Mosieur, RMS CommunicationsÂ chief executive officer. ÂWe pay cash for those phones, and also offer people a way to dispose of their old phones in an environmentally responsible manner.Â
Typically, RMS will pay between $3 and $90 for each useable phone, and will carefully recycle and dispose of phones that are unusable. Usable phones are refurbished by RMS and may be resold around the world. Many phones are donated by RMS to domestic violence shelters, senior centers or other worthwhile organizations.
ÂSelling old cell phones to us keeps them out of landfills, where they can cause environmental damage,Â Mosieur said.
