Wireless…The New Recyclable

Abstract:CTIA - The Wireless Association and its member companies are committed to the goal of sustainable development and the environmentally sound management of end-of-life wireless products. CTIA's members that manufacture mobile devices are continually designing their products to be smaller, lighter and ever-more environmentally friendly. For example, handset manufacturers are phasing out the use of cadmium and lead. CTIA and its member companies have also designed and launched a comprehensive national recycling program, Wireless& The New Recyclable™, a program pursuant to which companies collect used mobile devices, recycle or refurbish them, and raise consumer awareness of the fact that their used mobile devices are in fact recyclable products.
