|Recycle My Cell Program|
The Municipality of Yarmouth now is part of the Recycle My Cell program.
Most of us have owned on average three or four cell phones prior to our current one. That means that a lot of us likely have a slew of old devices that are either getting hidden away in junk drawers or disposed of incorrectly.
The Municipality of the District of Yarmouth has joined Recycle My Cell, Canada's free cell phone recycling program, making it easy to dispose of your old devices responsibly. A drop off box is located at 932 Hwy 1, Hebron, where old wireless devices and their accessories will be accepted, regardless of brand or condition. After your device is received, it is sent to a processor where it can be refurbished or broken down and recycled.
“Thinking green doesn't need to be complicated, and keeping old cell phones out of our landfills couldn't be easier,” says Bernard Lord, president & CEO of the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association. “I encourage all Canadians to take a few moments to reflect on some of the simple things they can do to help protect the environment for future generations.”
Help the Municipality of Yarmouth go green by dropping off your old cell phones! Accepted items include: cell phones, smartphones, wireless PDAs and pagers (as well as their batteries and accessories). For more information on the program, visit www.RecycleMyCell.ca.
