Above is the original post I had made asking about cell phone recycling. When I had looked into there were a few difference places that offered this. You do need to have a bunch of phones to get some money for them. Sabrina is right, many women's shelters take these phones as donations to use as 911 phones for their clients. The only thing is that we'd get 15 phones at a time, and we wouldn't have 15 clients to hand them out to. So the agency that I worked for would send them to the Shelter Alliance company.
I think this would be a worthy project as long as we spread the word out. The WAT came to mind as it's a large gathering of PF supporters anyway that could just bring their old phones. Rather than sending them to someone within the organization for collection. Many people just have their old phones laying around, at least around here. The cell phone companies are not too pushy when it comes to recycling phones here.
