Trade in your cell phone for a Scooter

I don't know about you, but I am a little ashamed to admit that I have at least two old cell phones of mine hanging around the house. There are quite a few things we can do with old cell phones--and they are all better options than letting them gather dust. One thing is for certain: it's not good for the earth to just throw them away. Cell phones can often be recycled and can leech dangerous chemicals into landfills.

Aside from just plain recylcing them, donating them to charity, or sending them in for Swagbucks, we can now use our old cell phones to enter a Vespa giveaway. (I first learned about the giveaway at earth911.com.) As part of this promotion, everyone will receive a $250 Sprint credit towards a new cell phone for each phone (in any condition) that is traded-in. In addition, donators will be entered to win a Vespa Scooter and Samsung Replenish phone.

Find out more about the giveaway and locations where you can recycle your phone, head over to Sprint Sweeps.

It's my goal this week to find my old cell phones, clear my information off of them, and get them out of my house! I'll report back to you on my progress. How do you recycle your phones?
