Take a look through your drawers and you could well have an old mobile or two lurking in the depths. Well, what good are they doing in there? Making the decision to recycle mobile phones that are no longer wanted makes far more sense, and here are just a few reasons you should consider it:
Good for the environment
If you throw out a mobile phone it’ll end up on a landfill site, and with such huge emphasis on the environment these days you need to recycle everything you possibly can. That applies to mobile phones as much as anything else—every phone recycled means one less clogging up the landfill, and that can only ever be a good thing.
Good for you
You fancy a bit of extra cash in your pocket? Then recycle your old, unwanted phone and you could have the money you’re after quickly and simply, and as an added bonus you’ll also have one less piece of clutter filling your home.
Good for the new owner
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and if you’ve got a particularly high-end phone (if you’re looking to sell Nokia mobiles or recycle Blackberry phones, for example) there’s a very good chance that someone else will want it. So why not let them have the opportunity? They can have a pre-loved phone at a fraction of the original cost, being great for their wallet as well as your own.
These are just a few reasons you should recycle your old phones, and as you can see, it makes sense to give it some thought. So why not give it a go? It’s a win-win situation for everyone concerned—you’ve got nothing to lose.
