The Louisville, Ky.-based Alltech–Muhammad Ali Center Global Education and Charitable Fund recently launched a cell phone recycling program to support educational and humanitarian initiatives while increasing access to cell phones in developing nations.
Donated cell phones have their memories wiped before they are refurbished for sale in developing countries or broken down for recycling. Proceeds from the sale and recycling of the phones will go to the Fund. On Nov. 23, USA Today published a Sports Weekly Special Edition featuring Muhammad Ali that included a postage-paid envelope to be used for the cell phone recycling program.
Used cell phones can be mailed to Alltech International, 3031 Catnip Hill Pike, Nicholasville, KY 40356. Alltech is a global animal health company supplying natural feed supplements for animal agriculture in 120 countries.
