Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
According to a report by Lookout Mobile Security, nearly one out of every three Americans is hoarding at least one old cell phone. Of that number, 62% admit to doing so, because they don’t know how to properly discard their old phones.
CEO Norm Schneider of CJ Environmental, the parent company of Cash for Cell Phones USA, says that "we are trying to contribute to the sustainability of the environment by not only educating the consumer about electronic waste, but also paying customers more to capture attention in hopes to change the direction how devices are thrown away."
With the constant addition of new technologies to the mobile device market, people are cycling through phones faster than ever. But while many people are familiar with how to set up a new device, the process of discarding the old one remains a mystery. Throwing away phones in the trash is not only illegal, but environmentally unsafe. Believe it or not, the little device people are attached to contains several strands of hazardous material, and millions of used phones are improperly discarded and continue to stockpile our landfills. Do you want to contribute to this ever growing hazardous waste problem?
The best option for both people and the environment is for people to sell their old phones to Cash for Cell Phones USA. Having already paid out $50,000 to its customers in its first three months of operation, this company guarantees sizeable payouts – with a guarantee to beat out any other company’s quote by at least 20%.
Of the 62% of American cell phone hoarders, another 13% hold on to their phones in fear of potential exposure of personal information on their devices. Cash for Cell Phones USA address this concern with its free (and guaranteed) secure data removal service.
At Cash for Cell Phones USA, once the contents of your phone have been deleted, the phone is refurbished or recycled – and old PDA, tablets, and phones are commoditized into plastics, glass, and metals to be used for future industrial uses.
