Members of Wireless Association Work Together to Promote Recycling Efforts
Washington— The Cellular Tele-communications & Internet Association and its participating members unveiled an initiative entitled, “Wireless...The New Recyclable” to promote the recycling of used wireless products and accessories.
“The wireless industry has been a leader in encouraging the safe management of its used hardware, recycling tons of wireless devices and accessories over the past 5 years,” said Tom Wheeler, President & CEO of CTIA. “With this launch, the industry is taking an aggressive leap forward. CTIA will be the central point of synergy, organizing a combined industry effort that is greater than the sum of individual company’s existing recycling programs. CTIA will also take the lead in educating and energizing consumers on the importance and ease of recycling wireless products.”
As more Americans adopt wireless technology, and continue to regularly update their devices, the need for wireless recycling increases. CTIA member companies are committed to sustainable development and the environmentally sound management of their wireless products at end-of-life.
A number of wireless carriers, manufacturers and organizations are already participating in this initiative, including AT&T Wireless, Cingular, Motorola, Nextel, Nokia, Panasonic, ReCellular, Sony Ericsson, Sprint, Verizon Wireless, and the Wireless Foundation. CTIA expects additional wireless companies to join the initiative in the coming months as well. For more information on “Wireless...The New Recyclable,” visit www.recyclewirelessphones.com.
