Cell Phones for Soldiers Drop Off Locations Cell Phones for Soldiers (CPFS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides cost-free communication services to active duty military members and veterans. The organization was founded in 2004 by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist, then 12 and 13 years old, with only $21. CPFS relies on generous donors for cash contributions and funds raised by the recycling of used cell phones.

RecycleTronics Drop Off Locations “Every single material, whether it's from a computer, a TV, or microwave gets recycled. Each commodity is sold on the market. Instead of sitting in a landfill for eternity, they'll be put to new use, made into decks and fences, glass products, and building materials. In the future, profits will go to charity. Right now, the bulk of the revenue pays off the (franchise) debt and salaries for the RecycleTronics' employees, all of whom are disabled veterans.” (KTIV, April 2010)
