Somebody's Finally Doing Something With all Those Old Cellphones
Posted: 23-Mar-2011 [Source: MobileTechNews]

[Reldan Metals, Co. is looking for business partners with quantities of old cellphones to recycle the precious metal scrap. ]

By Jean Whitinger, CTIA -- Reldan Metals, Co. has a booth set up at CTIA. They have a large bowl full of chocolate candy coins and a table with tired old dead cellphones surrounding large blocks of chocolate covered in gold-colored foil.

OK..they hooked me, but what do they do? After speaking to Todd Willis, the Senior Account Executive for the company, he explained that Reldan Metals is on the lookout for large quantities of old cellphones and other electronic devices in efforts to recycle the precious metals in them.

The company headquarters are in South River, NJ and the refinery is in Fairless Hills, PA. A representative from the Phillipines was also on hand. The company has established a branch office in that country to bring various materials to its U.S. refinery for recycling of precious metal scrap from that region of the world.

Mr. Willis emphasized that the Abington Reldan Metals, LLC refinery is ISO 14001 certified, ensuring compliance with environmental laws and regulations. The refinery is a zero discharge refinery and doesn't send any 'fully treated waster water' down the drain. The refinery was also built to green specifications and sits in an eco-friendly industrial park. All that sounds good for those of us wanting to recycle our old cellphones and other electronic devices while maintaining minimal environmental impact.
