Batteries: Not sure what to do with your old batteries? What you've heard is true, it's not a good idea to throw them in your regular trash. Bring them to our shop and we'll make sure they are properly disposed of. (AA, AAA, C, and D batteries only).
Cell phones: We've partnered with Hope Phones to provide free cell phone recycling that gives your old cell phone new life on the frontlines of global health. Over 500,000 cell phones are discarded in the United States every day and pollute the environment with tons of plastic and dangerous toxins. Recycling with Hope Phones reduces hazardous waste in our communities responsibly, while providing a significant public health benefit abroad. If Hope Phones can recycle just 1% of disposed phones each year, they can outfit 1 million health workers, improving the lives of 50 million people. Hope Phones takes ANY phone – working or not, and they don’t need chargers or accessories. Their recycling partner erases all data through a certified and secure process. Learn more.
