Richland and TGA Global are collecting unwanted cell phones for reuse or recycling, with the proceeds benefiting the city's Helping Hands Program.
Collection containers are at Richland City Hall, near the cashier's window, and at the Richland Public Library and the Community House.
TGA Global removes the data, cleans and refurbishes the cell phones, Blackberrys, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and data cards.
Richland's Helping Hands Program helps residents in need with their utility bills.
