How to dispose of old cell phones in an environmentally friendly way?

Over the years I've accumulated a number of old cell phones, some broken, some just out of date. How can I get rid of them in an environmentally friendly way? I don't want to just toss them in the trash and my town doesn't have an electronics recycling program.
Cell Phones for Soldiers might be a good way of doing it:
