Pictures of a Cell Phone Recycling Center, ReCellular

All Good Cell Phones Go to Heaven

Upgrading your cell phone is something of a mild obsession around here, and with upgrading comes the inevitable question of what to do with an old cell phone.

Half a billion (!) cell phones were replaced in 2007 alone, with many of them going to recycling centers, but what happens once they get there? Technology Review has a beautiful photo essay depicting ReCellular, the country's largest cell phone recycling center.

The picture here is just the beginning in what I think looks like an overwhelming — and fascinating — process. Be sure to check all the pics out and maybe show your baby cell phone that yes, honey, there's an afterlife.
