he average North American gets a new cell phone every 18 to 24 months, making old phones—many that contain hazardous materials like lead, mercury, cadmium, brominated flame retardants and arsenic—the fastest growing type of manufactured garbage in the nation. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans discard 125 million phones each year, creating 65,000 tons of waste.

The solution is the separation of cellphone suppliers from service providers, making the pricing of phones transparent so that contract users are not constantly tempted by the prospect of a new phone "for free" (they are certainly not free or even cheap, given the rip-off prices for airtime).
