Spring into Action with HopeLine® from Verizon

Tips to clean up the house and give back to the environment.

By Cameka Crawford on March 19, 2012

Today marks the first day of spring – a time for renewal, rebirth and most importantly, spring cleaning! HopeLine® from Verizon offers a quick option for eliminating household clutter while spring cleaning, allowing consumers to give back to the environment while doing so.

Through HopeLine, consumers can easily recycle wireless devices, batteries and accessories from any wireless provider. Recycled phones are refurbished, generating proceeds that are donated to domestic violence prevention organizations. Phones complete with 3,000 minutes of service are provided to victims and survivors of domestic violence, providing a lifeline of support. If phones are unable to be reused, they are disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. Since the program began in October 2001, more than 1.72 million phones have been properly disposed of in an environmentally sound way.

Give spring cleaning a new meaning this year by recycling no-longer-used wireless devices and giving back to a good cause! By donating used goods to HopeLine from Verizon, spring cleaning no longer becomes a chore, but a way to help the planet and your community.
