Be Green All Year Long

Sprint offers two wireless recycling/reuse take-back programs to prevent thousands of tons of wireless equipment from entering the waste stream – Sprint Buyback and Sprint Project ConnectSM.

Sprint Buyback accepts eligible devices from any carrier or manufacturer. Customers can bring in up to three eligible wireless devices in-store (per 12-month period/wireless number) for recycling and receive an immediate account credit for the value of eligible old devices, without having to upgrade an existing device or plan. Customers can receive from $5 to $300 per eligible device through Sprint Buyback. Customers can also take advantage of the program online at Sprint.com/buyback.

Devices that do not qualify for the Sprint Buyback program can be donated to Sprint Project ConnectSM, a recycling service that accepts all used wireless phones, batteries, accessories and data cards, regardless of carrier or condition. All net proceeds generated from the sale of equipment collected through Sprint Project Connect help to promote Sprint’s 4NetSafetySM program.
