The wireless industry has revolutionized the world. Over 5 billion people, or over 75% of the world’s population, now own cell phones and smartphones. This wireless revolution has brought on a growing environmental concern. It is estimated that over 1 billion cell phones and smartphones have been retired worldwide. Numerous toxic elements contained in cell phones, including lead and arsenic, will be disposed of in landfills unless viable recycling solutions are implemented.
Founded in 2001, GRC Wireless has emerged as a leader in cell phone buyback and recycling. We provide innovative zero landfill programs designed to incentivize organizations, business, and consumers to responsibly recycle cell phones. GRC Wireless transforms environmental challenge into great opportunity. GRC Wireless has responsibly processed over 5,000,000 cell phones since 2002, and our participating organizations and individuals have earned over $10 million through our programs.
