Tons of Gold in Thrown Away Cell Phones


Cell phone and PDA recycling and reuse is truly a little known opportunity with high potential. Very few are doing it and literally billions of dollars worth of gold and other valueable metals are in storage or in landfills. Read on for details.

A 2007 USGS report concludes that in 2005 there was $251,000,000 - yes two hundred and fifty one million dollars worth of gold in the 631,000,000 discarded or obsolete cell phones and this is based on a gold value of $362 per ounce. At today's prices this 20.9 metric tons of gold is worth over $1,000,000,000 - more than one billion dollars and many more cell phones have been retired or are obsolete and discarded. Learn more about gold and other valuable metals thrown away with cell phones.

Also consider this:

  • According to InfoWorld there were 207.9 million cell phone users in the United States alone as of the end of 2005 and according to Softpedia there were 2.14 billion cell phone users worldwide in the same year.

  • According to People's Daily Online, global production reached 750 million units in 2005 and, the Globalist reports that 900 million cell phones were sold in 2006. These are big numbers. Needless to say, the potential for the recycler is amazingly high.
