Materials you can recycle
The following materials will be collected and recycled free of charge.
- cell phones
- all handheld wireless devices
- empty ink cartridges (with or without box)
- batteries, accessories, and chargers
What happens to your old cell phones and empty ink cartridges?
All your materials will be sent to Cartridge World (for empty ink cartridges) and Wireless Alliance (for cell phones). The materials will be handled in the most environmentally friendly manner possible. Empty ink cartridges will be refilled and reused. Collected cell phones will be reused, refurbished, or smelted down for metal and plastic components to be made into new products. All of the electronics Wireless Alliance receives stay in the US. Items that can be reused are sold to citizens or companies in the US. Anything that is not salvageable is sent to a ISO certified facility in Pittsburgh that reclaims all the metals.
Due to recent legislation in Oregon, effective January 1, 2010 the landfill currently receiving the University of Idaho’s municipal solid waste will no longer accept Electronic Waste (E-Waste). This means that no E-Waste may be put in interior waste cans, exterior trash cans or dumpsters. For simplicity sake, if a unit has a plug, battery, or microchip, it will be considered E-Waste.
If we do not have collection boxes available in your building, please contact us at (208) 885-0125 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will collect materials from you while you wait for your order to be processed.
