e-Cycle Launches Nationwide Campaign to Reuse and Recycle for Autism Speaks

e-Cycle, the leading wireless buyback and recycling company, has partnered with Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, to launch Reuse and Recycle for Autism Speaks, a philanthropic wireless recycling campaign. The campaign begins April 1, during Autism Awareness Month, and will run through June 30, 2014. As part of the initiative, e-Cycle is asking businesses and organizations to donate their mobile phone buyback revenue to Autism Speaks through the e-Cycle Foundation.

Organizations may also donate used iPads through the campaign. Donated iPads will be wiped of all data using e-Cycle’s rigorous data security processes to be repurposed for Autism Speaks initiatives. iPads have proven to be an especially useful tool for improving communication, motor, and cognitive skills for individuals living with autism. They are portable, customizable, and the touchscreen is more accessible for children who have learning or coordination difficulties.

e-Cycle is kicking off its campaign by donating iPads to Nationwide Children’s Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders, a member of Autism Speaks’ Autism Treatment Network. In addition, e-Cycle will maximize the amount of money raised for Autism Speaks through wireless buyback by contributing an additional $2 for every device received through the campaign between April 1 and June 30.

“Through our partnership with Autism Speaks, we’re providing businesses and organizations a means to make a difference on multiple levels,” said Tonia Irion, e-Cycle President. “They not only have the opportunity to protect the environment by recycling their enterprise wireless devices, but they also can support efforts to improve the lives of those on the autistic spectrum.”

“Autism Speaks is excited to join in this new partnership with e-Cycle as we kick off Autism Awareness Month in April,” said Alec M. Elbert, Autism Speaks’ chief strategy and development officer. “The donation of iPads has become one of our most popular and effective programs because of their value as a communication tool for kids and adults with autism.”

During the campaign, the e-Cycle Foundation will coordinate the tax-deductible mobile buyback donations for e-Cycle’s clients and write a check directly to Autism Speaks on their behalf.

e-Cycle in the Community

At e-Cycle, we are committed to so much more than just being an industry leader in mobile phone recycling. In addition to helping businesses, organizations, and individuals reduce electronic waste in landfills, e-Cycle is very active in the community.

We support a variety of organizations and causes, whether it is through financial contributions or volunteerism. These causes include:

  • Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) – the worldwide leader for research to cure type-1 diabetes.
  • The Stephanie Spielman Fund – dedicated to helping breast cancer patients and research at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute through activities and donations,
  • Flying Horse Farms – a camp for children with serious illnesses.

It doesn’t just stop with us, though. You can also help out your favorite causes when you recycle cell phones for charity with e-Cycle.

e-Cycle in the Community

Chris Irion, the CEO of e-Cycle, recently spoke to a group of sixth graders at the Columbus Academy about the importance of recycling cell phones. Through interactive questions and prizes, Chris captivated his audience, teaching them about the benefits of mobile phone recycling.

By being active in the community, through charitable causes and public speaking opportunities like the one mentioned above, e-Cycle can continue to educate people on the importance of cell phone recycling. From keeping our landfills clear of electronic waste to protecting one’s private data to making extra cash for getting rid of old cell phones, it is important that we understand all the great reasons for recycling an old cell phone.

When you do recycle your old mobile phones, be sure to do so with e-Cycle. As an industry leader, only we can provide the best possible mobile phone recycling experience. You can make extra cash with us or recycle cell phones for charity, but whichever route you choose, you’ll be glad you did it through e-Cycle.
