EcoATM Mobile Phone Recycling
Winner: 2010 IERCE Innovative Product of the Year
Winner: 2012 CES Design & Innovations Award
Winner: 2014 LBA Green Business Award
The ecoATM kiosk was designed to solve the problem of disposal for used consumer mobile devices. Today’s mobile users upgrade their phones every 12 to 24 months which means they need a safe, convenient, environmentally responsible way to get rid of their old ones. In 2014 it was estimated that there were 396 million inactive phones in the US alone and 80 million would be recycled while many of the others still had potential to be refurbished and redeployed. A big problem is that mobile phones contain toxic materials that pose a threat to the environment to need to be kept out of landfills. To solve that, the ecoATM was born.
ecoATM is a renowned leader in reducing electronic waste and finding value in gently used electronics. We offer a simpler and safer way to sell devices, all while taking the initiative to create a greener planet.
Together, we’re here to change how the world thinks about pre-owned consumer technology and make a lasting, positive impact on the world we live in.
In 2013, just five years after inception, ecoATM inked a deal to be acquired by Outerwall, formerly Coinstar to support the growing global demand for refurbished products and mobile devices.
