Wireless recycling leader GRC Wireless Recycling(SM) announced today that its cell phone recycling programs have contributed $3 million to nonprofit organizations. Through its Shelter Alliance® and Recycling Alliance(SM) programs, GRC promotes socially responsible programs that offer significant fundraising opportunities. More than 2,000 organizations in 50 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico, as well as thousands more supporting businesses, have participated in GRC’s cell phone recycling programs.

“We are very happy to have reached the $3 million milestone. I have always maintained that the measure of our success is evidenced by the amount of money that our programs generate for our nonprofit participants,” said Henry Garcia, founder and CEO of GRC Wireless Recycling. “We are also satisfied in knowing that we are contributing to a worthwhile environmental cause.”

GRC’s flagship program, Shelter Alliance® (http://www.shelteralliance.net), was founded in 2002 to meet the recycling needs of domestic violence shelters that collected phones from their communities. Today, more than 80% of the domestic violence shelters in the United States actively use Shelter Alliance® as a recycling and fundraising resource. Recycling Alliance(SM) (http://www.recyclingalliance.com), was founded in 2004 to meet the recycling and fundraising needs of schools, religious and community organizations. Both programs attract significant support from the private sector, as businesses nationwide recycle their phones with GRC to benefit nonprofit participants.
