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."
