Welcome Center welcomes your cell phones

EDITOR:

Each week cell phone ads flood our newspapers and airwaves, encouraging us to upgrade to the newest technology. But what happens to all of the outdated equipment? Most of the estimated 140 million cell phones retired annually are stashed away somewhere, gathering dust. Unfortunately, many of these phones find their way to landfills where they can leach hazardous materials into the surrounding environment.

The El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce is proud to say that we can help with the solution by announcing our participation in the 911 Cell Phone Bank. Used cell phones can now be recycled to raise funds and provide emergency communications to senior citizens and victims of domestic abuse in our community.

We are asking individuals, businesses and other organizations to donate cell phones to help. Every day people in our community are victimized or abused and your donation may provide the critical link between law enforcement and someone in trouble.

To recycle your retired cell phones or for get more information please visit us at 2085 Vine St., Suite 105, El Dorado Hills, 95762, or call (916) 933-1335.

The El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce and California Welcome Center – El Dorado Hills will accept phones through 2011.

Sincerely,

Cassidy
Communications & Events Director
El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce
