e-Cycle’s Tips on How To Pack Cell Phones for Safe Handling When Shipping for Recycling

Ensure your package of cell phones and other electronics do not get damaged during shipping.

e-Cycle is a cell phone buyback and recycling company that provides free shipping as part of our wireless asset-recovery services. To ensure our clients understand the proper way to prepare cell phones, tablets and other wireless devices for mail delivery, we created the following video and helpful shipping tips to make certain our clients’ mobile devices are not damaged during delivery.

  1.  Do not pack more than 50 wireless devices per box. Boxes weighing over 40 pounds have an increased risk of damage during transit and create a safety issue for package handlers. This includes cell phones, tablets, phone chargers and other accessories.
  2. Do not use a box larger than a copy paper box. Large boxes make it difficult for package handlers to maneuver and carry the electronics shipment, increasing the possibility of your package and mobile phones and tablets being damaged during shipping.
  3. Use newspaper or other soft packing materials to protect your wireless devices. Surrounding your mobile devices with soft packing material creates a shock absorber in case your package is dropped or roughly handled during transit.
  4. Tape all box seams and then tape cross-wise. Tapping seams will secure your box and keep it from ripping during transit.
  5. Loose cell phone batteries must be individually wrapped or have covered terminals. A fire can occur if the terminals of loose batteries rub together and create a spark. For safety reasons, it is important to tape these terminals or put them in individual zip lock bags.

Following these five steps will keep your wireless devices and the confidential information they store secure during shipping. For more information on e-Cycle’s mobile recycling services and data security practices, visit e-Cycle.com.

The Columbus Foundation Features e-Cycle Mobile Buyback and Recycling Founders

The Columbus Foundation featured e-Cycle wireless asset recovery and recycling founders, Chris and Tonia Irion, in their summer newsletter. The article, “Celebrating Homegrown Success Stories,” discusses how the Irions turned their passions for charitable giving, protecting the environment and technology into a successful business.

Founded in 2005, e-Cycle purchases nearly 500 types of used mobile phones and tablets that retain value and recycles all others at no charge. e-Cycle was the first wireless recycling company in the world to achieve e-Stewards certification, the global gold standard for environmental stewardship.

The article highlights one of e-Cycle’s most important core values, charitable giving:

In keeping with their goal of charitable giving, the Irions help companies maximize the amount of money they raise through mobile buyback and write a check directly to the charity of the company’s choice on its behalf.

“We’ve raised millions for our clients and their charities of choice and kept millions of devices out of landfills. Just this year alone, we’ll keep roughly four to five million phones and accessories out of landfills,” Chris said.

In January 2013, the Irions established the e-Cycle Foundation of The Columbus Foundation. e-Cycle clients can donate directly to the foundation and then suggest a charity to support with all or some of the money they recoup from their old devices.

Selling an old mobile phone comes with a number of benefits, a few of which we have looked at before. These include environmental benefits, data protection and, of course, the chance to make some extra money.

But something you may not have considered is the simple fact that you’ll be getting rid of the clutter in your home or office. Let’s face it, at some point or another, we all let clutter build up around us, pass it during the day and think to ourselves, “One of these days, I’m going to get rid of this stuff.”

Then more time slips by and that little pile of stuff we don’t need has become an insurmountable problem and the next thing you know, you’re on an episode of Hoarders.

Since the start of this company in 2005, in Ohio, the company has seen 400 percent growth that has continued to provide employment to over 60 people in these three years of a struggling economy.
