Framingham, Mass. -- In celebration of America’s Recycle Day on Nov. 15, Staples and the Boys &Girls Club of America (BGCA) announce a partnership to recycle cell phones and other mobile electronics. BGCA’s Torch Club for children ages 11 to 13 will collect used cell phones, PDAs, pagers and chargers for reuse and recycling.
