Clean Out a Drawer, Help a Soldier

You know all of those old cell phones and charging cables that have been piling up in a drawer in your kitchen?  Ever wondered if they would ever come in handy again?

Your old cell phones can now be used to help soldiers stay in touch with their friends and family.  The organization “Cell Phones for Soldiers” is running a drive that turns your old cell phones into more than 12 million minutes of prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas. To do so, Cell Phones for Soldiers wants to collect 50,000 cell phones each month through a network of more than 3,000 collection sites across the country.

PostNet Kingwood and are partnering to host a drop off site in Kingwood from June 1 – July 31.  PostNet Kingwood is located at 4321 Kingwood Drive in the HEB Shopping Center in Kingwood.  Drop off your used cell phones and make a difference!

Go Green in the Process

Not only will turning in your cell phones help U.S. Troops; it will also help our environment.

By properly disposing of old cell phones, they can be reconditioned to extend their useful life and help to keep hazardous wastes and toxic chemicals out of landfills and incinerators where they potentially reduce air quality and leach harmful chemicals into ground water.

What Recycling Cell Phones Can Do:

  • Keep harmful chemicals from reaching groundwater and polluting the air
  • Reduce the amount of resources extracted from the earth
  • Help ensure a healthy environment for future generations
  • Prolong the life of a cell phone
  • Introduce cell phones into new markets with limited communication capability
