Why Mobile Phone Recycling is important to help environment?

Mobile phone industry is very dynamic all over the world and new handsets are released into the market at every point in time. Almost every one of us want to enjoy possessing the very best and latest mobile phone equipped to work better with the latest technology and thereby end up frequently upgrading to new mobile phones. This leads to large quantities of old and used mobile phones dumped globally leading to environmental pollution. In fact, recent research has suggested that there are more than 400 million of unused mobile phones in the USA alone. Old, used and unwanted mobile phones that are thrown away end up in landfill sites releasing toxins into the environment as they deteriorate. Mobile Phone Recycling is a simple act which paves way in significantly helping towards reducing landfill waste for a greater and greener environment and at the same time helps in earning some extra cash.
