What can I do with my old cell phone?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

The CWTA's Recycle My Cell program is a province-wide, end-of-life recycling program for cell phones and accessories, available to all consumers and businesses in British Columbia. As of November 2009, you can drop off any of the regulated products at designated collection sites and be assured they will be recycled responsibly. Drop-off locations will accept cell phones, smartphones, wireless PDAs, batteries and pagers, as well as cords and accessories - regardless of brand or condition.

Visit the Recycle My Cell website or the RCBC Recyclepedia to find the nearest drop-off location for you old cell phone.
