Originally uploaded by kchaloner

It’s energy efficient to rebuild old computers, but only about 2% of PCs ever find their way to a second user. Did you know that fewer than 20% of cell phones are recycled each year, but if we recycled just a million cell phones, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions equal to taking 1,368 cars off the road for a year. We recycle old phones at GCS – bring your dead phones to the South Hall!
