Health & Safety
Discarded Cell Phones Present Environmental Hazard
According to a study reported by Associated Press, Americans will discard 130 million cellular phones annually within three years, producing 65,000 tons of trash, including toxic metals. The environmental and public health impact of this waste may be of significant concern. Many cell phone companies offer trade-in programs where you can bring in your old phone and receive a voucher for a new phone. You can also donate phones to a domestic violence shelter or to your local Goodwill charity. But check first to verify that the organization will take such items. For more information, contact Joe Beres at 202-319-6112.
