Work green, live green. This is a motto we follow as we conduct business at Verizon.

As more smart phones and tablets enter the marketplace, we are committed to collecting used models to mitigate the rise in electronic waste.

Thanks to you, through just one of our programs we have recycled more than four million old devices to date. That is equal to:

  • 337 passenger cars staying off the roads for an entire year
  • 181,000 gallons of burned fuel
