What Is Cellular Phone Scrap?

Cellular Phone Scrap consists of old cellular phones with or without batteries. The introduction of newer cell phone models and the inherent tendency of humans to embrace changing technology results in millions of cellular phones being discarded across the world.

Most cell phones contain precious metals and plastics which can be recycled. If disposed in landfill, these materials can lead to air pollution and soil contamination. Moreover, the coating on cell phones is typically made of lead, which also can cause health hazards, if disposed of carefully. In addition, the circuit board on cell phones contains materials including copper, gold, lead and zinc. The presence of a wide range of valuable and hazardous materials makes recycling of cell phones extremely important.
