One-Stop Communications wants to remind you of several programs offered free of charges at locations in Lewistown and Newport.
Just about any type of wireless phone can be dropped off at One-Stop Communications for recycling. Some phones are refurbished and sent to other countries to be reused. If the phone is obsolete, it will normally be disassembled to reclaim the metals and plastics contained in the phone. If you have a newer model phone, it may still be worth a few dollars. In this case, One-Stop Communications will give you cash back for your phone.
One-Stop Communications has partnered with a national program called Call2Recycle that helps consumers conveniently recycle their used portable rechargeable batteries.
Nickel Cadmium (NiCd), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Ion (Li-ion), and Small Sealed Lead* (Pb) batteries are commonly found in cellular and cordless phones, laptop computers, cordless power toools, two-way radios, camcorders, remote control toys, digital cameras and a variety of other portable electronic products.
When a rechargeable battery can no longer hold a charge, it can and should be recycled. Consumers can drop off their used rechargeable batteries free of charge at One-Stop Communications, and the items will be processed at a recycling facility. Useful material will be reclaimed to make stainless steel products and new rechargeable batteries.
*Portable rechargeable batteries weighing less than 2lbs/1 Kg.
One-Stop Communications has partnered with Skills of Central PA to recycle computers, monitors and other computer related equipment. Printers and Apple monitors, however, are not accepted at this time.
Computers can be dropped off at One-Stop Communications. From there, they will be sent to Skills of Central PA, where hazardous material in the machines can be safely removed, and parts can be recycled. Skills of Central PA promotes jobs for those with disabilities.
