Recycle & Reward

Want to support our troops and wounded veterans while keeping America free of electronic waste? Veterans Advantage is doing just that, and we need your help! Send us your old cell phone, and we will recycle it and use the funds from your donation to Give the Gift of VetRewards to those who need it most.

Our Recycle & Reward campaign was first launched in partnership with the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority on September 11th, 2003, to help support our troops overseas and serve as a memorial to the lives we lost in the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.

Today, the Recycle & Reward campaign has expanded to give the gift of VetRewards to wounded veterans, Medal of Honor recipients and their spouses, student veterans, and other deserving men, women, and families who have served.

Interested in recycling your old cell phone, used laptops or tablets, empty inkjet or toner cartridges, e-readers or other electronic devices for a good cause? It’s easy - just mail your unwanted electronics to Veterans Advantage, described below.
