Recellular had a booth at CES encouraging people to sell or donate their old phones rather than toss them, and buy used for their next mobile phone purchase. Recellular is a take back and re-sell company that is pretty extensive, working in the US, Brazil, and Hong Kong. Their booth featured free envelopes visitors could take to send in their phones, and information about how great buying a used phone can be.
Conference attendees might have been a little under-enthusiastic considering all the great new phones they'd just been drooling over, but at least the awareness was there.
