Recycle & Reward

Want to support our troops and wounded veterans while keeping America free of electronic waste? WeSalute (founded as Veterans Advantage) is doing just that, and we need your help! Send us your old cell phone, and we will recycle it and use the funds from your donation to Give the Gift of WeSalute+ to those who need it most.

Our Recycle & Reward campaign was first launched in partnership with the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority on September 11th, 2003, to help support our troops overseas and serve as a memorial to the lives we lost in the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.

Today, the Recycle & Reward campaign has expanded to give the gift of WeSalute+ to wounded veterans, Medal of Honor recipients and their spouses, student veterans, and other deserving men, women, and families who have served.

Interested in recycling your old cell phone, used laptops or tablets, empty inkjet or toner cartridges, e-readers or other electronic devices for a good cause? It’s easy - just mail your unwanted electronics to WeSalute (founded as Veterans Advantage), described below.

Military & Veterans Life

Cover Story: How & Why WeSalute Was Founded 25 Years Ago

WeSalute founders Scott and Lin Higgins have spent a lifetime in the military community, from Scott’s combat service in Vietnam and the service of Lin’s father in WWII, to serving families and veterans through the creation of memorials and parades as part of charitable and government initiatives. It was this lifetime of service that led them to establish WeSalute, originally founded as Veterans Advantage, and to continue giving back.
