of the rapidly advancing cell phone technology, the
average American buys a new cell phone once every two
years. Most people will either throw their old phone
out or just put it in their junk drawer only to forget
about it until their spring-cleaning.
Right now there are over 500 million cell phones sitting
in drawers of America’s households. An equal amount
of phones have found their way to our nations landfills
where they will sit for thousands of years decomposing
and negatively impacting the environment.

WITH THE ABC RECYCLE™ FUNDRAISING PROGRAM!
HOW TO RUN YOUR ABC RECYCLE™
ABC Recycle™ has made it easier than ever to start
a recycling fundraiser:

check for up to $200 per cell phone and $10 per printer cartridge within 30 days of
completing your fundraiser.
To begin, please get your FREE ABC RECYCLE™
START-UP KIT by clicking HERE.
Make photocopies of all the material and distribute
to your members. Allow for 4 weeks to run your fundraiser:
Spread the word in your neighborhood by going door to door to businesses and
homes. You should leave a letter (provided
in your start-up kit) explaining the fundraiser
and detailing the dates and times you will be
coming back to collect the phones and cartridges.
(Schools and youth organizations should send home
letters with your members to give to their parents
informing them of your ABC RECYCLE™ fundraiser.
This letter can also be found in your ABC
RECYCLE™ START-UP KIT.)
Set up a “Drop off” location. This
can be a school, a member’s house or a local
restaurant or store.

send out a bulk email informing everyone of the
recycling fundraiser. Let them know where they
can bring their old cell phones and cartridges
over the next 4 weeks.
Go back to the houses and businesses that
you went to during the first week and collect
the phones and cartridges. If some people are
not home you can leave another letter letting
them know exactly which day you will be back to
collect the phones and cartridges.
Staple a small brown paper bag to the letter.
This letter will explain that the bag is for the
empty cell phones and printer cartridges and that

the bag in front of the door for your organization
