    Phones, portable devices, radios and many other devices will be accepted for recycling Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

    On Saturday, Cowboys Stadium will take part in attempting to break a world record for the most consumer electronics collected within 24 hours (at multiple locations).

    While it may not sound like a very exciting record, it's for a great cause -- Earth Day 2012.

    The stadium is one of five sites nationwide (the other sites are New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Sacramento) that will collect the devices to attempt to break the world record.
    Anyone who drops off a recyclable good will receive a coupon for $5.00 off on a tour of Cowboys Stadium.

    Unacceptable items: liquids, toner cartridges,hazardous materials, cans, bottles, oils, cleaners (liquid), automotive parts, tires, large appliances, refrigerators, microwaves, constructions materials or paper
