Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Nevada company has collected 255 cell phones statewide for the Cell Phones for Soldiers program.

In July, RMI Management (Nevada's largest community management company) began collecting gently used cell phones to be recycled.

The proceeds from the recycled phones are being used to purchase calling cards for U.S. soldiers deployed overseas.

"We have been amazed at the number of cell phones we've collected in the past six months," said Steven Parker, president of RMI Management.

RMI will continue to collect cell phones for the program on a continual basis.

Gently used, late-model cell phones are preferred. However, any type of cell phone from any carrier may be donated.

Phones can be dropped off at the following locations:

  • 630 Trade Center Drive, Suite 100, Las Vegas
  • 7951 Deer Springs Way, Suite 170, North Las Vegas
  • 6170 Ridgeview Court, Suite C, Reno
