Description of Services:The Facility accepts obsolete phones and related components, including phone-related batteries, from various wireless suppliers. These items are not considered wastes and are deemed feedstock. Approximately 90% of the batteries accepted are lithium-ion. Shipments are visually screened when received and each box is “triaged” to determine what is included in a box and what will be required to refurbish the phone.

The phones are cosmetically refurbished, the memory is deleted, minor repairs are made as necessary, and the phones are put in boxes and resold as either phones logoed for the supplier, or they are "de-logoed" and sold as generic phones to various markets or charitable programs. The Facility’s proprietary data erasure service removes all personal information from devices in compliance with new information privacy laws. Phone numbers, messages, games, images – are all guaranteed to be erased. Those items requiring minor repairs are fixed using new or reclaimed parts, then remarketed. All others are tested for functionality and assigned a grade based on the potential for reuse. Any Grade-A parts are salvaged, packaged in trays for shipment and resold to manufacturers and carriers. All non-working, sub-grade parts are sent offsite for recycling for possible recovery for additional revenue. If a cell phone does not work upon receipt, it is de-manufactured and the components are segregated and sent offsite for recycling.
