A Program for Recycling Wireless Phones, Smartphones, Batteries & Accessories
You shut off the water while brushing your teeth. You hit the office light switches off at the end of the day. You even dig through the trash bin to salvage those recyclable aluminum cans. But when it comes to electronic waste (e-waste), do you know how to reduce waste and safeguard human health and our natural environment? According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), of the 2.25 million tons of TVs, cell phones and computer products that can be recycled, only 18 percent was collected for recycling and 82 percent was disposed of, primarily in landfills.
While wireless phones comprise just a portion of that e-waste, AT&T and its customers can play an important role in addressing this issue. That is why AT&T has introduced a national recycling program to make recycling easy and accessible for everyone: AT&T Reuse & Recycle.
The AT&T Trade-In Program lets AT&T customers turn in old wireless phones and tablets to receive an AT&T Promotion Card. The card can be used to offset the cost of some of the latest wireless devices, purchase of other AT&T products and services or the value can be donated to an AT&T-designated charity. Trade-in value is determined by device make, model, and condition. Customers can use the card on any AT&T good and services, including smart phones, tablets, accessories and billpay. All phones – regardless of manufacturer or date purchased – will be considered for trade-in.
