PALAMA (KHNL) - Aloha Medical Mission (AMM) is teaming up with Project Re-Cell to raise funds by recycling old cell phones. AMM will receive between $1 - $300 for each phone, depending on the year, make, model, and working condition. If you or someone you know have old cell phones lying around at home (even broken ones), donate your phones by dropping them off at a designated bin at one of the following Honolulu locations:

AMM Administration- 810 N. Vineyard Blvd.

Dr. Jorge G. Camara- 2226 Liliha St. , #407

Dr. Ramon K. Sy -1314 S. King St., #503

Mobi Stores

Colortyme

Computer Geeks Hawaii

Alii Wireless

StarComm Wireless

Wireless2Wireless

808 Communications

Unlimited Wireless

You can also drop off PDAs, accessories, and other e-waste.

This program also benefits the environment. According to Project Re-Cell, "The cadmium from a single phone is capable of polluting 158,200 gallons of water or the equivalent of 2.4 million cups of coffee." The money will support future AMM medical missions. AMM's goal is "Bringing Hope and Changing the Lives of the People We Serve Overseas and in Hawaii."

Call AMM if you have questions at (808) 847-3400.
