Donors Receive Free Shipping for Working Wardrobes" Cell Phone Drive

t's a win, win, win situation. Thanks to a new agreement between Overnite Express and ease e-waste, businesses and households across Orange County can empty their drawers of old cell phones, comply with new e-waste disposal laws, and benefit Working Wardrobes, a local charity" all for free.

For the past two years, Working Wardrobes has held cell-phone drives with local recycler ease e-waste raising extra money to provide professional wardrobing and career development services to men and women in Orange County who are emerging from life crises. "It has been an easy extension for our friends who are already donating their gently worn clothing, to also want to recycle their old cell phones. People are able to feel good about putting these items back to work for their community,"� says Jerri Rosen, CEO and Founder of Working Wardrobes.

Overnite Express became aware of the Working Wardrobe cell phone drives this summer and offered to make the donation process even easier"� as well as FREE. Those wishing to donate simply put their phone(s) into an envelope, affix the complimentary shipment form (available at www.overniteexpress.com/recycle.asp) and drop the envelope into the nearest Overnite Express drop box. "Our main distribution center is just around the corner from the ease e-waste recycling center. It prompted our collecting the phones here to help raise money for one of our favorite causes,"� notes Rob Ukropina, President of Overnite Express.

"It makes so much sense for non-profits to raise money by recycling cell phones,"� explains Devon Diaz, CEO of Santa Ana-based recycler ease e-waste. "The phones have a residual asset value that's worth more en-mass to the charity than the trouble for an individual to reclaim. Plus it's good for the environment and allows people to clean out their junk drawers without having to call Hazardous Waste Management."� Many Orange County residents don"�t realize that it is against the law to throw an old cell phone in the garbage. But as of February 9, 2006, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) prohibits all batteries, cell phones and other electronic devices from being discarded into landfills due to their harmful impact on the environment.

Donating a cell phone has never been easier. It's good for the environment and it's for a good cause. For every cell phone received, a $0.75 donation will be given to Working Wardrobes.
