Louisville, Ky. – In honor of Veterans Day and National Recycling Day, AEG Facilities will be collecting new and gently used cell phones for national non-profit, Cell Phones for Soldiers at the KFC Yum! Center.
Fans are being asked to bring the phones to the University of Louisville men’s basketball game vs. Manhattan on Sunday, November 11 from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. They will be collected in the main lobby.
In 2011, Cell Phones for Soldiers shared 690,000 communication tools with military families, providing more than 41 million minutes of talk time. These donated cell phones are being kept out of landfills where the hazardous chemicals and heavy metals they contain can pollute the earth.
Donated devices are sent to ReCellular, the world’s largest recycler of mobile devices, before being sent to the soldiers.
