The ECO-CELL Difference
Strict NO LANDFILL program for all items collected. We take all handheld electronics regardless of their age and condition. We also take extra batteries, chargers, accessories, etc. Many of the other recycling programs are really interested in only collecting high-value items. They will not take these often toxic accessories leaving you with the question, “what on earth do I do with these?” At ECO-CELL, we take them and keep them out of the waste stream.

Simplicity and Straight Shooting
Unlike other recyclers, we don’t deal in unrealistic expectations and deceptive practices. We offer a simple, straight-forward program that pays up to $50.00 for each cell phone collected. The amount we pay for each phone is based on prices derived at a monthly auction conducted with multiple buyers. We are not going to make promises we cannot keep and that’s why we don’t publish price lists. Be wary of small print and promises of $300/phone from other companies. If you have questions about current value phones or how we pay our fundraisers, email us or call us toll free at 888-326-3357.
Timely payment and good service is guaranteed. We will issue payment within 30 days of processing your order. If we screw up and your payment is delivered late, you can be assured that we will do our best to make it right.
The Personal Touch
We are proud to say that we work directly with our partners, who tell us that they appreciate the personal attention and accessibility that we offer. We are a “mom and pop shop” that has been family owned and operated since 2003. When you contact ECO-CELL, you speak with Eric or Lindsey.
We aren’t focused on going big. Our focus is on our partners and the work we can do together. We seek to help our conservation partners raise funds for their programs, and we do it in an environmentally-responsible and community-building way. If you have questions about the program or your payment — or if you simply want to explore ideas, we are here.

Silverback Incentive Program
We like to reward commitment to a cause. We offer an incentive and rewards program called the Silverback Program for companies that have collected more than 1,000 phones. The more good you do, the greater the rewards. See all the benefits of being a Silverback partner.
Something for Nothing?
Because we sincerely want to encourage recycling and keep these small electronics out of our landfills and toxins out of our groundwater, we will give something for every handheld electronic you collect. Even if they are end of life phones or other electronics, which means they will need to be recycled often at a cost to us, we want to be sure to reward your efforts. Currently, we give $.05/each for every zero value phone you recycle. That can add up.
Integrity: Promises Kept, Partnerships Earned
We are the “real deal” and have real relationships with our partners. There is a reason we are a member of the American Zoological Association, have partnerships with over 110 zoos nationwide, and are the official recycling company of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International.
