Apologies for Cross-Postings
Does anyone know of a comparison of different services providers
comparing the end-uses of recycling cell phone and/or ink cartridges, and
the values paid to nonprofit partners?

liked Eco-Cell's commitment to no landfilling, and 80% of the phones
being refurbished and reused. Reuse is MUCH better than just
recycling. I didn't see a similar commitment on
US Recycle's site.

I am generally familiar with these type of collection services and
believe both of these companies appear to be good service
If you'd like, I could forward these 2 links to colleagues who are more
knowledgeable and get their feedback and any comparison details.

...Riverbanks Zoo & Garden has had a cell
phone/ink cartridge recycling program underway (loosely) for the last
year. It's been kind of under the radar, and we're planning to jump start
it to make it more impactful in the next couple of months. We're likely
going to tie in the "save the rainforest/save gorilla habitats"
message, but we'd also like to know what recycling these items might do
to help us here at home (I think the majority of people around here tend
to act/react more deliberately when the sense of urgency relates to their
backyard). The main info we have comes from:
http://www.eco-cell.org/cellwaste.asp. Didn't know what you think
about the info on this site and/or if you know where we might find
additional info about the value of recycling cell phone and/or ink
cartridges? We're not actually working in conjunction with Eco-Cell but
with a local recycling outlet called US Recycling:
(They don't have much info on their site).
Any info/insight/ideas you might have would be
