Recycling My Old Cell Phone (another one, not the one I recycled last week)

IMG_1309

My first cell phone! Just sitting in my room for about 10 years.

I am ashamed to admit that I found yet another old cell phone in my room. That means I had three cell phones in my room at one point. Yup, people reading this must think I’m drowning in piles of junk. But it’s not that bad! Well, at least I’m working on it.

I believe this is the first cell phone I ever had. I think it’s circa 2002-2004 because I remember taking a vacation in the summer of 2004 and it totally crapping out on me. I would charge it for hours and it would only work for about two minutes before it died. Right after that vacation, I got another cell phone. This means that I have kept an unused broken cell phone in my room for over nine years. Sigh.

Since I didn’t have another one of those convenient prepaid envelopes to mail the phone to the recycling people, I decided to walk to the Rogers store to recycle it through the Phones for Food program, which helps to fund Food Banks Canada. So today I decluttered, recycled, donated, and exercised. Not a bad day.
