Doing Right.
Kyocera Cell Phone
Take-Back Program

Since beginning business in 1959 Kyocera has embraced a principle called “harmonious coexistence,” doing what’s right as human beings for the environment and society.  This guiding principle is why Kyocera is working with SecondWave Recycling to provide a cell phone take-back program that is completely free, enabling the responsible disposal of old cell phones. We accept any and all brands of mobile phones for recycling.

Kyocera is pleased to provide a free, pre-paid shipping label for the recycling of your phone (all brands accepted).  Simply use the fields on the right side of this page to request your shipping label. In the spirit of recycling, Kyocera encourages you to reuse an existing box or envelope to send your phone(s).  If you do not have one, Kyocera will gladly provide one at no cost to you.  Please contact us by email to request your free shipping container.  In your email, please include your mailing address.  Once your request is received, the container will be sent to you and should arrive within 7-10 business days. Once received, simply print a pre-paid shipping label and affix it to the container.
