Recycle My Cell, Canada’s national cell phone recycling program, wants to support Waste Reduction Week in Canada (WRW), helping to ease Atlas' load, by making sure that all old and out-of-use cell phones, smartphones, wireless PDAs, pagers, as well as their batteries and accessories, are properly recycled.
As part of its support and celebration for Waste Reduction Week in Canada 2013, Recycle My Cell is issuing a challenge to Canadian schools. If your school or post secondary institution is looking for an opportunity to make a difference environmentally, while having a chance to win some great prizes, then this is for you! Sign up for the challenge, and everything you need to participate will be provided to you!
Canadian students from kindergarten to post secondary are challenged to recycle as many old wireless devices and accessories as possible between Oct. 21 and Nov. 22, 2013. In addition to doing a good thing for the environment, students could also win $500 for their school to use for green initiatives!
Join the 4th Annual Recycle My Cell Student Challenge
Get your school signed up on or after Sept 18! The Recycle My Cell Challenge is open to all schools and post secondary institutions across Canada. Everything you need to set up a Recycle My Cell collection site will be provided to you. All you need to do is collect the phones and send them to us for responsible handling! Even the shipping is free!
Registration opens on Sept. 18 and is quick and easy. All we need is your contact and shipping information so we know where to send the Recycle My Cell recovery box! The Challenge takes place from Oct. 21 - Nov. 22. Ship your collected phones to Recycle My Cell by Dec. 6, and the winning school in each province and territory will be announced in late February.
All schools are eligible to participate, but must register through the Waste Reduction Week website. Please provide a contact name and the address where we are to send the collection box.
It’s not a Challenge unless there’s more than one school participating in the province! If you have friends that go to different schools, get them involved in by participating in the Recycle My Cell Student Challenge as well.
Register only once! If you have not received your box within a week of registering, contact email@example.com and we’ll make sure to get you one!
Boxes MUST be sealed and returned by the deadline in order to be included in the Challenge.
All cell phones, smartphones, wireless PDAs, pagers, batteries, accessories are included – it doesn’t matter how old they are or whether they are damaged.
The winning school will be determined on the basis of number of phones collected per student (based on the school population).
