Dexter, MI (PRWEB) September 28, 2008
ReCellular, Inc. has been selected for the 2008 Best of Dexter Award in the Recycling Centers category by the U.S. Local Business Association (USLBA).
The USLBA “Best of Local Business” Award Program recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country. Each year, the USLBA identifies companies that they believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.
ReCellular pioneered the wireless recycling industry, as the first enterprise dedicated to the emerging cell phone market. Today, ReCellular collects 4 million phones per year through corporate, charitable and grassroots collections programs.
Approximately half of the phones ReCellular collects will be reused – considered the ultimate form of cell phone recycling. Functional phones are reconditioned and reprogrammed before being sold to wholesalers from more than 40 countries. Phones and accessories that cannot be resold are dismantled and sent to cell phone recycling partners for reclamation. ReCellular’s Zero Waste Policy recycles every item received. In addition to circuit boards, phone chargers, and plastic accessories, the ISO 140001 Certified recycling program reclaims nickel, iron, cadmium and lead from battery packs; paper and cardboard shipping materials; and even leather and vinyl materials from phone carrying cases.
The USLBA gathered and analyzed various sources of information to choose the winners in each category. The 2008 USLBA Award Program focused on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the USLBA and data provided by third parties.
With offices in the United States, Hong Kong, and Brazil, ReCellular, Inc. is the world’s foremost electronics-sustainability firm. ReCellular provides solutions for the collection, reuse and recycling of used personal electronics that generate financial return for its partners, quality products for its customers, funding for charity organizations, and protection of the environment.
