Cell Phone Recycling Program - Ongoing

Donate new or used cell phones to The Shelter and provide life-saving access to emergency services for adult and child victims of domestic violence, dating violence and elder abuse.

Collection boxes placed throughout Collier County provide a convenient means for individuals to recycle both phones and chargers. The majority of phones recycled are charged and given to adults and children in danger, allowing them to make emergency 911 calls only. The Shelter also works with business partners that properly recycle collected phones and, in return, make a cash contribution to the nonprofit organization.

For more information on our Cell Phone Recycling Program, including details on how to host a Cell Phone Recycling Drive, please call The Shelter at 239.775.3862, ext. 235, or email to
