Ready to upgrade your cell phone to the latest version? Before you take a hammer to your old phone and throw it in the trash, give serious thought to recycling it instead to keep your data secure and the phone out of a landfill. At Tri-Star Electronics Recycling we make it easy!
TSR’s Cell Phone Recycling Service
Our mobile phone recycling starts with addressing data security. These devices are called smartphones for a reason. They store a huge amount of our personal data from the obvious financial data, such as credit card numbers, to medical data to our daily routines with GPS tracking. Obviously, this information needs to be protected, and our secure Data Destruction procedures offer peace-of-mind that TSR takes its security seriously.
Once your phone’s data storage is wiped clean, our recycling process begins. With R2 Certification from a third-party certification body, you have reassurance that Tri-Star Recycling is a responsible recycler. We follow the highest standards for managing and disposing of your electronics equipment, including cell phones. From picking up your equipment at your office to any end-of-life recycling of its components, your phones and data are securely and expertly managed.
Our mission is zero landfill. Period.
Tri-Star Recycling upholds a zero-landfill mission. All clients receive documentation outlining chain of custody and assurance that all data has been destroyed properly. Our downstream vendors share our zero-landfill mission; being R2-certified means we only work with other R2-certified vendors.
Why Recycle Mobile Phones?
Understanding the whys of cell phone recycling requires looking at the specific cell phone components. Not only does your phone contain the expected plastic and metal, but some of its material is even valuable. Each phone can contain gold, platinum, and copper (up to 15% of its materials, in fact). So not only can certain components be recycled, but others can also be resold or reused in other ways.
