The Wellesley RDF cites stats about cellphones lasting an average of 18 months and that 150 million will be discarded this year alone. It encourages you to use the clearly marked igloos at the the RDF for recycling your old iPhones, BlackBerries, etc. The phones can sometimes be refurbished and redistributed as well. Just make sure you take precautions with any personal data you might have on the phones.
