OGDEN — Weber State University's Environmental Club, in partnership with Cell Phones for Soldiers, has launched a recycling campaign to collect deactivated cell phones that are no longer used. Proceeds from the collection drive will help purchase prepaid calling cards for U.S. soldiers deployed overseas.

People can donate phones at WSU Environmental Club drop-off locations in the Shepherd Union Atrium and Student Association Offices on WSU's Ogden campus.

The collected cell phones — which contain chemicals too dangerous to be placed in landfills — are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers enough to provide an hour of talk time to soldiers abroad for each donated phone.
