Program Description

  • Recycle My Cell (RMC) is a free, national, industry-led, recycling program for mobile devices and accessories. The program is run by the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA) in conjunction with cell phone carriers, handset manufacturers and certified processors. The goal of this program is to minimize the number of handsets entering Canada's landfills.
  • CWTA is the authority on wireless issues, developments and trends in Canada. It represents cellular, personal communications services, messaging, mobile radio, fixed wireless and mobile satellite service providers as well as companies that develop and produce products and services for the industry.

Why is it Important?

By mailing in or dropping off your mobile device for recycling, you divert waste from your local landfills and help the environment. You also decrease the need for raw materials to manufacture new products. And, your donation generates revenue which is distributed to various charitable organizations across Canada.


A small effort on your part can make a big difference.

Products Eligible for Collection Under the Recycle My Cell Program Include

  • Mobile/wireless devices that connect to a cellular or paging network, including cell phones, smartphones, wireless PDAs, external aircards and pagers – regardless of make, model or condition
  • Rechargeable cell phone batteries
  • Headsets, chargers and other accessories


Enter your postal code to find the 10 nearest drop-off locations. You’ll also find pre-paid mailing labels, information about the participating programs and instructions for deleting personal information from your device.


Then, simply drop off your phone at your nearest drop-off location. Or print off a pre-paid mailing label and mail your device to Recycle My Cell, free of charge.
