It will help prevent poisoning the earth.

Mobile phones contain harmful materials, such as arsenic, lead, and mercury especially their batteries. Throwing your old phone away usually means it ends up in landfill, where the harmful materials would be free to harm the environment and cause serious dangers.

You could preserve precious natural resources.Your phone may no longer be working, but it does not mean that all of its parts are useless. Many phones still have components such as copper, silver, gold, and palladium that are worth preserving and recycling.

It could help a domestic violence victim. Verizon is a longtime advocate of domestic violence victims and the agencies that support them.
