With this new wave of technology and increased environmental consciousness there are many questions that come along with the relatively new concept of recycling electronics. We have done our best to address those questions here. For any questions not answered after reviewing this page, please feel free to e-mail us for more clarification or with your specific concern.
Each phone that cannot be refurbished or resold gets broken down into raw materials for proper recycling. Proceeds from our recycling program go toward educating the public about environmental impacts and the importance of post-consumer recycling as well as maintaining this website.
Any personal data such as passwords, contacts, e-mail addresses, etc. will be safely removed in one of two ways - working phones will be master reset to factory specifications which removes any stored data prior to reuse. Non-working phones will have the data securely destroyed during the tear-down / recycling process. SIM cards are also destroyed if left in the phone.
Perfectly good working phones are sold to consumers here in the USA - Cell Seattle DOES NOT SHIP PHONES OR PARTS OVERSEAS like other similar services. Some are refurbished or used for spare parts and the remnants are also recycled locally.
We quickly put cash back in your pockets for gently used electronics, saving you the hassle of broadcasting your personal phone number or e-mail address online through a classified ad or having to pay fees to third-party agencies to sell your electronics. We also securely destroy any data stored on your device so you can have the peace of mind in knowing that your information is safe. Finally, we accept ANY mobile phone regardless of condition, as well as cell phone accessories and user manuals for recycling. This allows you to conveniently drop off all cell phone items in one place! We even pay for shipping if you have 10 or more phones to recycle. E-mail to request a shipping label today!
Great question! Visit the "Sell to us NOW" page & submit the form with your handset information. Within 24 - 48 hours, we will e-mail you a prepaid shipping label to turn in your phone for FREE. Once the phone is received we check the condition and promptly Paypal you your funds electronically or send you a check for the value of the phone. It's THAT EASY!
Yes! We are based out Ferndale, WA - 90 minutes North of the Seattle metro area and primarily focus our efforts on the Pacific NW, however, anyone who finds our page is welcome to get involved or sell us their used phone. We also accept donations from all over the country to support cell phone recycling.
No. Once a device has been sent to Cell Seattle, it becomes our property and cannot not be sent back to the original owner. To avoid any changes in your price quote, please be honest and provide as much detail as possible about the make, model & condition of your equipment prior to sending it in. You can e-mail photos separately to Trevor@CellSeattle.com to enhance your quote.
Yes we do! We gladly accept all mobile phone accessories (including user manuals) which get responsibly recycled too.
