Turn in old cell phone for a free sandwich


If you live in Rochester, N.Y., and have an old, dead cell phone, here's a chance for you to earn a free sandwich.

Dec. 11-13, Subway is holding a cell phone recycling campaign in the city in partnership with environmental group Rock the Earth, Water Street Music Hall, Gibson Guitar, and Brother Wease from 95.1 The Fox.

During the campaign weekend, customers can drop off a cell phone at any participating Subway store in return for a 6-inch sandwich. The deal excludes premium subs and each donor is limited to one sandwich.

Donors would also earn a 20% discount from Musictoday on artist apparel and merchandise. In addition, each phone would get an entry in a sweepstakes where prizes include: concert tickets to upcoming shows at the Water Street Music Hall, Rochester Nighthawks tickets, Radisson Hotel stay, digital downloads, and the grand prize of a Gibson Les Paul retailed at $1,600 courtesy of the Gibson Guitar Co.
