Recycle Cell Phones and Smartphones

The Dwelling Place partners with GRC Wireless, an organization that pays us for your out-of-commission phones! To help us receive up to $40 per phone, please get us your gently used cell phones and smart phones. They must have a battery, and service must be cancelled. What an awesome way to help our environment and support our women and children! If you or your group would like to donate, please contact us at (651) 221-0405 or by email. Thank you!
