SHARON, Mass., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gizmogul, a newly launched cell phone recycling service, gives back in more ways than one. In addition to paying customers in return for cell phone donations, they have partnered with the international nonprofit organization buildOn to promote and support its Afterschool Service and School Construction Programs.
When cell phones and other electronic devices are improperly disposed of, they leach harmful chemicals into the ground that have detrimental effects on our environment. Gizmogul set out to alleviate this problem by giving people everywhere an incentive to keep their unwanted cell phones out of landfills and recycle them instead. Once a cell phone has been received, the ubiquitous "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" mantra takes effect. If the phone is in good enough condition to be refurbished, the customer will receive 90% of the phone's worth and it will then be resold. If it is not in working order, Gizmogul will determine its worth based on its precious metal content and recycle it accordingly. And beyond benefiting the environment, every cell phone received directly benefits buildOn's Afterschool Service and School Construction Programs—just $22 can provide a child in a developing nation with access to an education.
"Our goal is to do what we can to help both the environment and the global community at the same time," commented Cory Schneider, vice president of Gizmogul.com. "Cell phones are among the most frequently purchased electronic devices, so getting people in the habit of recycling their old ones instead of throwing them away is a huge step in the right direction."
Gizmogul pays the consumer more than any other company in return for mobile electronic devices, and a percentage of the proceeds from every premium device received goes directly toward supporting the educational efforts of buildOn. Their innovative, user-friendly website makes it easy to print a free shipping label to send your device in, and their talking baby video will give you a good laugh while you're at it.

Headquartered in Sharon, Massachusetts and founded by three brothers, Gizmogul is a cell phone, PDA, and tablet refining and recycling service that works with both the private and public sectors and processes both small and large amounts of mobile devices. A subset of CJ Environmental, Gizmogul is dedicated to protecting the environment and is able to provide its customers with more money in return for their devices than any other company.
