AT&T Wireless Partners
with U.S. EPA
Redmond, WA— AT&T Wireless announced an enhanced
recycling program for the disposal of wireless phones, batteries, and
accessories in support of the EPA's Plug-In To eCycling, a campaign that
encourages Americans to reuse or recycle their used electronics, and Keep
America Beautiful, a nationally known nonprofit organization that focuses
on community improvement and beautification.
The AT&T Wireless Reuse & Recycle Program invites customers to
recycle unwanted wireless phones, accessories, and batteries, regardless
of the manufacturer or carrier, at any AT&T Wireless retail store.
AT&T Wireless employees will do the same at office locations nationwide.
Wireless phones collected through the AT&T Wireless Reuse & Recycle
program that cannot be refurbished will be recycled. The wireless phones
that can be refurbished will be donated to groups that respond to emergency
situations, such as the American Red Cross. Proceeds from the recycled
phones will be donated to Keep America Beautiful. In addition, AT&T
Wireless volunteers will participate in various Keep America Beautiful
clean-up activities throughout the year.
"We are honored to be the first wireless carrier to partner with
the EPA and Keep America Beautiful to help protect our environment for
the next generation," said Wally Hyer, vice president - AT&T
Wireless, who oversees the company's Environment, Health & Safety
division. "The AT&T Wireless Reuse & Recycle program offers
consumers and our employees a safe way to dispose of used phones, batteries,
and accessories. Our employees stand ready to help in this effort by volunteering
with their neighbors and friends in Keep America Beautiful's Great American
Cleanup(TM) activities nationwide. Together we can protect our environment
and keep our communities strong."
