CHESAPEAKE - What do you do with your old cell phone? Is it worth anything?

You can find out in just a few moment by going to an Eco-ATM.  There's one at Greenbrier Mall in Chesapeake.

Josh Ott went to the machine, provided the information about his SmartPhone and waited for the ATM to scan and complete the process.

He was impressed when it offered $180.00 for the phone.

"I have like my old iPhones and everything like that just gathering dust in a closet.  So I could take these things in and probably make an easy 500 dollars,"  said Ott.        

Brian Osgood was offered $16.00 for his old phone.

"I would have guessed it would have been worth more than that, but you never know on this recycling stuff," he stated.

The Eco-ATM has been at the mall for about a month.

"I think it's clever. I think it's great there's even such a vehicle to help recycle told old cell phones,"  said Greenbrier's General Manager Harvey Lindsay
