They could have sold the phone for reuseing instead of recycling which is far better and profit of few bucks!

How about recycling the Lumias to remove WP and put some other OS? That would multiply Lumias worth several folds.
THAT would be a win-win situation for everyone (except MS, ofcourse).

Wait, I'm confused... Do you, or do you not, like WP?

They not only recycle phones and think about the environment, they also think about their customers. Hence they didn't adopt a buggy, laggy and unsecure OS that would steal their consumer's personal info as their primary smartphone OS.

Wait, that's actually what they have done. And I wouldn't call Windows Phone that laggy.

That was bit low, I admit. But Android ain't buggy, laggy, and unsecure OS that would steal it's users personal info.

Lol dude I agree. They should make new hardware and port android in all Nokia lumia. And leave same body and look.

But anyways I like this because these toxic chemicals and elements are being used into making a better product again and not going into landfills or just going to complete waste. But does anyone know or have an idea of any reliable and respectable companies that recycles old phones, accessories, and electronics? I need to get rid of some.

Search Nokia Recycling point . You can find a Nokia recycling point/Nokia store through their store locator on Nokia's website.

One of the many reasons why they're my fav company. :D
They always think first about the environment

After they destroyed the environment, companies now
ask us to help them make more profits.
Will they lower prices accordingly?

I love how people always blame the companies. Who bought the products? You did. You cant blame them entirely, you didnt have to purchase that product. You couldve looked around for a more sustainable or more environmentally sound company/product... and anyways, nokia has always been environmentally conscious.
