Make a Donation!
The Zoo partners with Eco-Cell, a Louisville-based company that donates the recycled phones for emergency purposes upon request.
First and foremost, Eco-Cell reuses and resells as many items as they can for consumption. Cell phones that cannot be reused are recycled with Access FTC. Access aggregates the material and sends it to MPC. MPC than preps the material and sends it to UMICORE in Belgium.
All accessories are recycled with HOBI.
Batteries that cannot be reused are sent to Access FTC. Access FTC recycles batteries with MCT.
