426,000 cell phones [1] are retired in the USA every single day — and many of them wind up in the trash, where they contribute to the environmentally and socially devastating e-waste epidemic [2]. Fortunately, Sprint has launched several programs to ensure that old cell phones are properly recycled – and they’re offering participants a chance to win a gorgeous fuel-efficient Vespa LX50 scooter [3], AND an eco-friendly Samsung Replenish smartphone [4] and in their Green on the Go Sweepstakes [5]! All you have to do is submit your old phone to be recycled [5] – so enter today [5]!

Practically everyone has an old cell phone sitting around collecting dust – so why not recycle it for a shot at winning a zippy Vespa scooter and a Replenish eco phone? Sprint offers several cell phone recycling programs – the Sprint Buyback Program [7] offers new and existing Sprint subscribers an account credit for hundreds of eligible wireless devices. Sprint accepts phones from any manufacturer and/or any carrier in any condition.

How To Recycle Your Old Phone

Another good way to recycle your old working cell phone is to donate it to Sprint’s Project Connect [8]. Not only does it help keep millions of phones out of landfills, but all net proceeds generated from the sale of equipment collected through Sprint Project Connect [5] go to fund and promote free Internet safety resources for kids, parents, and educators. Sprint Project Connect [5] is a free service for anyone who has wireless phones, batteries, accessories and data cards that they no longer use. All makes and models are accepted, regardless of carrier or condition. To recycle your wireless device, pick up a free, postage-paid envelope at any Sprint-owned store nationwide. Or, print the free, pre-paid shipping label on the Project Connect site.
