OCALA, Fla. (PRWEB) July 18, 2005
CellForCash.com, which pays cash for used cell phones and then re-markets them around the world, said today it will accept and recycle all old cell phones that people send in, even those that do not have any market value.
James Mosieur, chief executive officer of RMS Communications Group Inc., CellForCash.com's parent company, said the old cell phones will either be recycled in an environmentally responsible manner or will be donated free of charge to law enforcement agencies and other groups for use as emergency 911 phones.
Since we make a profit on the valuable cell phones that we buy from individuals and then re-market around the world, we believe it is our responsibility to do what we can to recycle some of the millions of the old phones that get discarded every year, Mosieur said. That makes for a better and cleaner environment, and we are proud to be an industry leader in the responsible recycling of old phones.
Besides http://www.CellForCash.com, RMS operates a number of other web sites. One, http://www.WirelessFundraiser.com, provides cash to non-profit organizations that collect and send in old cell phones. Another, http://www.RecycleForUS.com, is an environmental initiative that helps companies, government agencies and other groups and individuals collect and recycle old cell phones.
The company also operates the 911 Cell Phone Bank program, through which it donates about 1,000 cell phones every month to law enforcement and other agencies for use as 911 emergency phones. If those agencies collect used cell phones in their communities and send them in, RMS will send back cash for the phones that have value.
Since the 911 Cell Phone Bank program was started in 2004, the company has provided $225,000 in cash to participating agencies, Mosieur said.
To take advantage of the free recycling offer, people need to simply visit the http://www.CellForCash.com website and click on free recycling at the bottom of the page.
CellForCash.com will generate a mailing label, which can be printed and attached to a box containing up to 10 old cell phones. If people should have more than 10 phones to donate, they can click on customer service to obtain a free recycling kit.
"More than 130 million old cell phones are discarded every year in the U.S. alone," Mosieur said. "Our recycling offer should help keep thousands of cell phones out of landfills, where they can cause significant environmental damage."
CellForCash.com pays cash for used cell phones, and makes the process simple by displaying the phones it will buy and the prices it will pay for them right on the web site. It also provides sellers with already-addressed, postage-paid mailing boxes. Its QuickShip option makes the process even faster. For more information visit the web site at http://www.CellForCash.com.
