Montgomery County’s sheriff is reaching out to help domestic violence victims and senior citizens in need by relaunching a cell phone collection and donation program.

“The Sheriff's office has been able to donate over 100 phones to domestic violence and senior programs for their clients,” Kilkenny said recently. “It's important to me that we continue to help people get access to emergency services when needed, by providing this program.”

Residents can drop off unwanted cell phones and chargers in clearly marked recycling containers at the following locations:

Phone Collection Box

- Montgomery County Courthouse, 2 E. Airy St., Norristown, (Main St., and Swede St., security entrances)

- One Montgomery Plaza, 425 Swede St., Norristown

- Montgomery County Youth Center, 540 Port Indian Rd., West Norriton

- Montgomery County Human Services Center, 1430 Dekalb Pike, Norristown

- Eastern Montgomery County Courthouse Annex, 102 N. York Rd., Willow Grove

For further information about the program contact the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office or  visit the department’s website at  

Kudos to the sheriff's department for continuing this important and potentially life saving program.
