ReCellular Named Exclusive Cell Phone Recycling Partner for Consumer Cellular

DEXTER, Mich., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- ReCellular, Inc., the world's foremost collector, reseller and recycler of used wireless phones and accessories, today announced it has entered into a partnership with Oregon-based Consumer Cellular (, one of the nation's oldest and largest mobile virtual network operators, to collect wireless handsets for recycling from their customers across the country. Proceeds from the new program will benefit Doernbecher Children's Hospital, the oldest full-service children's hospital in Oregon.

The recycling program features a unique pre-paid, take home mailer that allows Consumer Cellular customers to mail their used and/or unwanted cell phones directly to ReCellular for recycling or reuse. In addition, customers can take their phones to Consumer Cellular for drop off in on-site collection boxes. Proceeds from the program will go directly to benefit the children's hospital and help meet the special needs of children seeking medical attention.

"As one of the industry's largest and oldest mobile virtual network operators, Consumer Cellular is thrilled to have partnered with ReCellular to launch a customized cellular phone recycling program. From an environmental standpoint, we believe it is critical that our customers have an easy way to properly dispose of their old cellular phones. With our program, customers simply place the phone in an envelope and drop it in the mail. There is no cost and very little effort required. And the fact that Consumer Cellular and our customers can also support such a worthy cause as Doernbecher Children's Hospital in the process is simply amazing," said John Marick, President, Consumer Cellular.

Companies and consumers alike are facing increased pressure to diminish their environmental impact. Consumer Cellular and ReCellular offer a trusted, environmentally responsible option for disposing of unused cell phones. ReCellular is certified to ISO 14001 certification. Approximately half of the phones collected will be reused -- considered the ultimate form of recycling. These phones are reconditioned and reprogrammed before being sold to wholesalers from more than 40 countries. Phones that cannot be resold are dismantled and recycled under ReCellular's corporate "zero landfill" policy, in accordance with the company's ISO 14001 certification.

Protect the environment and help heal a child at Doernbecher today. Recycle your old cell phone at any Consumer Cellular location or visit to print a pre-paid shipping label.

Everything about Consumer Cellular is designed to make the service and customer experience simple. Consumer Cellular's core customer base is mature individuals 50+ years old with services marketed jointly through such organizations as AARP and AAA Automobile Club.
