Our Story

Our Story

We are building a sustainable pathway to a better tomorrow as planet Earth’s largest protector from mobile device e-waste. 

ecoATM has one simple mission: giving people financial instant gratification while helping solve the e-waste dilemma.

ecoATM is a renowned leader in reducing electronic waste and finding value in gently used electronics. We offer a simpler and safer way to sell devices, all while taking the initiative to create a greener planet.

Together, we’re here to change how the world thinks about pre-owned consumer technology and make a lasting, positive impact on the world we live in.


While we all love our electronic devices, e-waste has long been identified as a global concern, especially with the increase of mobile device production. ecoATM was established to address this problem, while providing a more financially and environmentally responsible way to sell and recycle personal electronics.

For the past ten years, we’ve grown in our high environmental standards and are proud to have collected over 27 million devices. Limiting the amount of e-waste that enters our environment is a major way our company contributes to the greater good for the planet. 

Our Technology

We power the smartphone re‑use and recycle revolution with our innovative technology. ecoATM kiosks are automated machines that make it simple and convenient for consumers to sell back unwanted smart devices. ecoATM kiosks are located in a variety of retailers across the US and Europe, paying consumers on-the-spot for used smart devices.

What Makes Us Unique 

Everything we do is for our consumers. There’s no one like us that combines convenience, instant financial gratification, green practices and a safe and secure process all in one place.



We have over 4,500 kiosk locations so that no special trips are needed. Customers can drop off their devices while grocery shopping or picking up essentials at our grocery and discount partner stores.


Instant Reward

It takes about 10 minutes to sell your device at an ecoATM kiosk. No haggling, no waiting, no dealing with strangers and no mail-in required.  


Green for Good

Every phone we buy is refurbished, resold or environmentally recycled. Since 2009, we’ve kept over 27 million phones out of landfills. 


Safe & Secure

Our kiosks are located in safe retail locations and are regularly cleaned. They are self-automated and require no direct human-to-human contact.

Our Partners

Because of our commitment to e-waste, we’ve partnered with like minded companies to make it easy for folks to drop their devices off while patronizing their stores.
