Sept. 13, 2010 - PRLog -- CFK has launched the Great iPhone Treasure Hunt, a dual purpose fundraiser meant to help encourage environmental responsibility as well as help schools and other organizations fundraise. Participating groups will be eligible for cash prizes up to $1000, as well as receiving a check for the value of the items they recycle.

Groups who are interested in participating can go to CFK's website or call 800.420.0235 to sign up. The Treasure Hunt runs from now until December 1. Groups are provided with a treasure map to follow, full of places from which to collect used iPhones and other items. Each month, participants receive a check for the market value of the items they recycled the month before. Lists of items CFK recycles and their values can be found on their website. Currently, iPhones are worth between $40 and $225 each. CFK also recycles other models of cell phones, laser and ink cartridges, iPods, digital cameras, DVDs, GPS devices, video games and consoles, scientific and graphing calculators, and laptops.

CFK will give away $1000 to the group that recycles the most iPhones between now and December 1, $500 to second place, and $250 for 3rd place.* Each individual who contributes an iPhone to their group's recycling drive will receive a special bag of pirate loot, provided by CFK.

"The potential for earning money during the iPhone Treasure Hunt is out of this world. Schools can earn over a thousand dollars, easily. It's the most money we've ever given away as a prize, and that combined with the high value of used iPhones make this the most exciting fundraiser CFK has ever done" says Anna Pollock-Nelson, a representative with CFK.

For more information, visit the CFK website at or call 800.420.0235.

* A minimum of 15 phones must be sent for 1st place, 10 for 2nd place, 5 for 3rd place.
