Profile of ReCellular, a company gets about 75,000 used phones a week and recycles / refurbs them for other parts of the world – “With the number of cell phones in use worldwide hitting 2 billion and rising, recycled phones are playing a crucial role in the spread of wireless communications across the developing world, where land lines can be costly or unavailable.
The odds are good that a refurbished cell phone in the pocket of a user in Bolivia, Jamaica, Kenya, Ukraine or Yemen originated with ReCellular Inc. Based in small-town Michigan, ReCellular gets 75,000 used phones a week – most collected in charity fundraisers – and refurbishes them for sale around the world.” Thanks Tim! – Link.
