Americans chuck an estimated 130 million cell phones in the trash every year. Consider that cell phones are just pretty packages for such toxins as antimony, arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, copper, lead, nickel and zinc. Suddenly, they seem less like disposable accessories and more like a Superfund cleanup project. As a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Mission resident Katie Winsor is recycling unwanted cell phones for cash through PaceButler Corporation. Shovel your unwanted Motorola Razrs into your trunk and drive down to the drop box at the Hy-Vee in Mission (6655 Martway, 913-831-4447). Winsor is collecting phones until October, and unlike your cell-phone bill, donations are tax-deductible. Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
