Do you accept accessories such as batteries and chargers, etc.?
As cell phone batteries account for the majority of harmful substances related to cellular phone waste, EcoPhones encourages you to include phone batteries in your shipments. We would prefer not to receive all other accessories such as chargers, cases, ear microphones, etc. and we will charge back the shipping costs ($20) related to boxes that primarily contain accessories. We realize that individuals often donate the accessories with the phone and it is a well-intended gesture. Unfortunately, these accessories are often heavy / bulky and very expensive to ship. Our program cannot support the shipping and recycling costs of these items, which is why they are excluded from the program. Please recycle these items locally and responsibly.
