Cell Phone Recycling
When these electronic devices are recycled through the Eco-Cell Recycling Program, older cell phones are disposed of according to strict environmental standards. New cell phones are refurbished and sold in developing countries. This process decreases the global market for new cell phones!
The Oklahoma City Zoo is one 110 zoos helping save gorillas through the Eco-Cell Recycling Program. Join us in this quest! Items accepted include smartphones, cell phones, handheld gaming systems, tablets, ipods and ipads as well as any chargers or accessories that come with these devices. Items not accepted include laptops, portable CD players and digital cameras. Donations are accepted in the Zoo's Guest Relations office during regular business hours. Thank you!
Pictured with former Zoo Deputy Director, Alan Varsik, are students from Konawa High School. They collected 320 electronic devices, including cell phones, and donated them to the Eco-Cell Recycling Program. The Zoo donates 100 percent of all recycling proceeds to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, the Oklahoma City Zoo's partner for gorilla conservation.
