Got a new mobile phone? Recycle the old one at Verizon Wireless stores in New York
Wondering what to do with your old mobile phone now that you’ve received a new one as a holiday gift? If you're in New York you can drop off your no longer used phone at a Verizon Wireless Communications Store and help fight domestic violence through the company's HopeLine Phone Recycling Program. All phones collected will be recycled or sold, and either phones or cash will be donated to non-profit domestic violence agencies. What’s more, you’ll know you disposed of your phone in an environmentally safe way.

In 2003, Verizon Wireless donated nearly US$45,000 to domestic violence agencies from the proceeds of phone recycling drives throughout the New York Metro area. As a result of HopeLine and related phone recycling programs the company has organized since 1995, Verizon Wireless has collected more than one million used wireless phones for the benefit of domestic violence victims and advocacy groups, including nearly 85,000 wireless handsets in the New York Metro area.

Domestic violence prevention and education is Verizon Wireless' chief community focus. Through its signature program, HopeLine, the company provides emergency phones to law enforcement agencies to distribute to women at risk, as well as free voicemail boxes to victims residing in shelters.

Donations are accepted at all 67 Verizon Wireless Communications Stores in the New York Metro area.
