Springtime is for flowers so recycle your old phone and get a FREE potted flower to take home. Drop off your used phone at Farragut Square Park (Connecticut Avenue & K Street NW) or Duke Ellington Park (21st & M Street NW/New Hampshire Avenue) on April 9 or 11 from 11 am to 2 pm.
There are millions of used cell phones sitting around that can pollute the environment and threaten human health. By recycling cell phones, the amount of toxic metals leeching into soil and groundwater can be reduced.
As long as your phone has been deactivated from service, there aren’t security or privacy concerns. All makes and models of mobile phones, pagers, and PDAs are accepted—along with batteries, chargers, and other accessories. For more details on what can be recycled visit Earthworks, the Golden Triangle BID's partner responsible for recycling the phones. Or, email email@example.com at the BID for additional information about the event.
