Recycling at Reynolds
Cell Phone Recycling Drive During Earth Week
- The cell phone recycling drive will be conducted from Monday, 4/18/16 thru Friday, 4/29/16.
- Collection Boxes will be placed on all campuses.
- The cell phones and accessories will be donated to Verizon’s Hopeline® Program to help victims of domestic violence.
Verizon’s HopeLine Program is a phone recycling program exclusive to Verizon that uses refurbished and recycled wireless equipment (cell phones with batteries, chargers, and other accessories) to help victims of domestic violence.
HopeLine Phone Donation Scrubbing Process
The donation process is very straightforward, here’s what you need to know:
- Verizon takes the protection of customer information seriously. We encourage customers who donate to HopeLine to erase any personal data on their phones first, and ensure service is turned off.
- Prior to donating your phone, back up all of your personal information. Erase your address book, call logs, messages, stored photos, videos and other media. Remove any storage cards and SIM cards from the phone.More information on how to erase personal data is also available on your phone manufacturer’s website or user guide.
- HopeLine puts donated phones through an extensive refurbishing process and does a complete scrub to ensure that all customer personal data is removed before distributing the phones for re-use by domestic violence victims and survivors.
In your office or work area, you will notice there are two trash containers, where there used to be one. One of these containers is designated for recyclables.
Deposit recyclables identified into the recyclable container.
When the recyclable container gets full, dump it in the centrally located “recycling centers.” These “centers” are on each floor.
Thank you for your extra effort to contribute to a greener campus and a more sustainable environment for our planet.
