Dispose of Cell Phones Right

Cell phones can be recycled at many retail locations (AT&T, Best Buy, T-Mobile and Verizon) and through a computer recycling collection program in your community.

Cuyahoga County residents can recycle cell phones, mobile devices, computer equipment and peripherals, tablets and handheld electronics at the Solid Waste District. The District accepts these items year-round at 4750 East 131 Street in Garfield Heights. Drop items off in the lobby during business hours Monday-Friday from 8:30 AM-4:30 PM. Look for the labeled collection bin. No bags or boxes in the recycling bin, please. Place items loose in our lobby drop box and take all bags, boxes and containers home with you.

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo collects cell phones plus other small personal elctronics and recycles them through ECO-CELL, an organization dedicated to gorilla conservation.

Cell phones can also be donated to local community service organizations that will reuse them. For local donation opportunities, see the list below.



Looking to recycle, donate or dispose of other items? Use the dark blue 'What Do I Do With?' search bar at the top of every page of this website. Allow location services or use the city drop-down to find opportunities in your local area.
