Keep old phones out of the landfill

You've heard horror stories about "recyclers" who just throw stuff away, or send it offshore for disposal. When you send your phone to us, it gets recycled in one of three ways:

If your phone can be refurbished and resold, we will do that. Please factory reset it to wipe your data, or unlock the phone and we'll factory reset it for you.


If your phone is too old or damaged to be resold, our recycling partner will disassemble it and sell the parts to repair or refurbish other phones. This is a critical component to responsible electronics recycling.


The pieces that are left are shredded and smelted through a metals refining process that recovers precious metals and rare earth elements, reducing the need to mine these materials from the earth.
