Employees and WNY recycled devices showcased at nation's capital
Sunnking, a nationally recognized electronics recycling, and corporate ITAD company, announces its inclusion in the upcoming cellphone exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. The exhibit, titled "Cellphone: Unseen Connections," will highlight the evolution of cell phones, and their impact on society over the past few decades.
The recycler sent hundreds of locally recycled phones to be displayed and will have two employee profiles featured in the exhibit.
"We're thrilled to contribute to the Smithsonian's 'Connected' exhibit and to share with their guests the importance of responsible electronics disposal," said Adam Shine, president of Sunnking. "As a company committed to sustainability and e-waste reduction, it's an incredible honor to have our history, story and community be a part of the celebration of this exhibit."
The cellphone exhibit, which opens to the public on Friday, June 23, spans the entirety of cellphone history, complete with interactive displays, video installations and other multimedia experiences.

Local employees such as Tammy Maxon will be showcased as part of "a diverse group of changemakers who are shaping the cellphones' present and future."
A press release stated, “Sunnking's contribution to ‘Connected’ includes involvement in a display on the responsible disposal of electronics and their components. This is especially important given the e-waste crisis, which has resulted in dangerous consequences when these items are not properly recycled. Sunnking's display will serve as a reminder of the importance of reducing e-waste, and highlight the company's efforts to provide a responsible and sustainable solution.
“The Smithsonian is one of the world's oldest museums and research institutions, and its National Museum of American History is famed for showcasing America's most significant innovations, ideas and cultural artifacts.
“The exhibit marks another significant moment for Sunnking, as they have long championed sustainable, environmentally responsible recycling. Since 2000, Sunnking has been committed to providing secure, efficient and environmentally responsible electronics recycling and data destruction services to clients around the United States.”
