Americans throw out approximately 416,000 mobile phones each day, according to 2014 figures from the EPA. That comes to more than 151 million phones thrown away in one year.

By recycling e-waste, like your mobile phone, you help ensure that useful — and finite — resources get reclaimed so that manufacturers can use them to make new products.
