If you have old, damaged or unwanted cell phones, PDAs or pagers taking up space at home, local high school students want to take them off your hands.


The R.D. Parker Collegiate science department is collection old handheld electronic communications devices this month as part of the Recycle my Cell "Earth Month Challenge.” Devices can be dropped off at the front office of R.D.P.C. anytime until the end of the month.


Recycle My Cell, the group running the challenge, will give the school in each province that collects the most phones a prize of $500. All schools that collect the minimum, 20 phones, will be awarded $1 per phone collected. The maximum one school can received (combined) is $1,000.


According to the official rules of the challenge, they will accept all old, damaged and out-of-use cell phones, smartphones, wireless PDAs and pagers. They added that they will also accept rechargeable cell phone batteries and accessories, but these will not count towards the challenge. They say that they will nto accept cordless phones, walkie-talkies, non-wireless PDAs, MP3 players, any battery not commonly found in a cell phone, laptop computers or answering machines.


The complete set of rules can be found here on the official website.


Recycle My Cell is Canada's national recycling program for mobile devices and accessories. They have multiple year round drop-off locations here in Thompson, including the BellMTS store in The Plaza and The Source in the City Centre Mall. They also offer a pre-paid shipping label on their website if there is not a convenient drop-off location where you live.
