Prince Edward Island is joining Canada’s wireless telecommunications industry in an initiative aimed at making it easier for Islanders to recycle old cell phones.

 

The Island’s effort forms part of a national program which lets users find out where and how to properly dispose of their cell phones and other wireless devices — regardless of carrier, brand or condition — at www.RecycleMyCell.ca.

 

The free program is organized by the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA) in conjunction with cell phone service providers, handset manufacturers and recycling companies.

 

“Canada’s wireless industry greatly appreciates the Government of PEI’s confidence and recognition of our commitment to the environment,” said CWTA president and CEO Bernard Lord.

 

Users can find cell phone recycling drop-off locations by entering a postal code at www.RecycleMyCell.ca or calling 1-888-797-1740 for more information.
