Recycle your old mobile phoneRSS feed

Apparently there are over 80 million redundant old mobile phones in the UK today. That's a staggering number, 2 for every man woman and child in the country capable of using one.

This week I got an email from envirofone who recycle mobile phones for resale in this country and abroad, bringing environmental and economic benefit. They basically buy old mobile phones directly from individuals or organisations. It seems to be a great way to raise money for good causes or to just extract some value from an unused phone. They take broken phones too.

Now, as someone who only in the last year got his first mobile phone (I'm a late developer), I'm not yet in a position to recycle my phone, but if you have a collection of old phones it might be worth a look? They're at http://www.envirofone.com.

also Oxfam will take your old mobiles, stamps and foreign coins left over from holidays. Dr Barnardoes will take empty ink cartridges.
