During a hearing on Capitol Hill today, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse announced an expansion of the company's wireless recycling program. The nation's third largest wireless carrier is now offering account credit for up to three recycled phones per line activated or upgraded. As it stands, over 900 devices are in the catalog, and credits range from $5 to $300 depending on the type of device and the condition that it it is in (sorry, water damaged phones need not apply). Devices from most carriers and manufacturers are accepted, and for the devices that don't receive in-store credit, Sprint Project Connect (the company's free wireless recycling service) is happy to take them off of your hands.
The new program is valid in Sprint corporate retail stores, and can be applied to the account or towards the purchase of equipment in the store.

How about yourself?
