Cell phone recycling drive for domestic violence shelter

Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful is hosting a Cell Phone Recycling Drive with drop off sites at more than two dozen public locations throughout the month of September.

Part of KCRB's lineup of Recycling Month activities, the free, month-long eco-conscious event offers citizens a place to safely discard and recycle cell phones in an effort to prevent hazardous substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic from leaking into Rockdale's water supply. KCRB will accept cell phones regardless of the condition, but encourages residents to recycle newer, gently-used cell phones and remove the SIM card prior to drop off.

KCRB will donate all collected cell phones to Project ReNeWal, a non-profit domestic violence intervention program serving citizens in Rockdale, Newton and Walton Counties. The organization provides victims with essential information, resources and support to transition out of violent situations into independent living. Project ReNeWal will then refurbish and distribute cell phones to its Domestic Violence Intervention Program.

For more information about the Cell Phone Recycling Drive, call KCRB at 770-278-7052 or email

Drop boxes will be available for citizens to discard unwanted cell phones beginning Sept. 2 at the following locations:
