We take ANY phone, working or not, and don’t need chargers or accessories. Our recycling partner erases all data through a certified and secure process. The phones are refurbished for sale or recycled safely. Hope Phones receives the value of each recycled phone to purchase new mobile technology for the field. Hope Phones is a campaign of Medic Mobile, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
- We recycle phones properly, for free.
- We provide a tax deduction for larger donations.
- If Hope Phones can recycle just 1% of disposed phones each year, we can outfit 1 million health workers, improving the lives of 50 million people.
We wipe devices using a combination of data destruction methods including both manual erasure and erasure using software. All of our data wiping is done in accordance with NIST Special Publication 800-88 Guidelines for Media Sanitization and in accordance with the R2 Standard. We are audited by a 3rd party at least annually to ensure the efficiency of our data erasure techniques and results and have not had a phone yet come back with data on it.
