In 2008, Ofcom observed that the total number of mobile phone connections in the UK actually totalled more than the country’s population of 6.14 million. This means more phones being used than there are people possibly able to use them, even counting every babe-in-arms.
This suggests a great many people must have more than one mobile: for business and home maybe, or for secret liaisons? Perhaps a pay-as-you-go that lies forgotten in a drawer after submitting to the lure of a shiny new contract phone. Taking into consideration the fact that most mobiles are regularly usurped by newer models, we start to get a picture of the staggering number of handsets in the UK.
Where exactly all these phones end up is not so clear. In these days of environmental responsibility and in the wake of dwindling resources however, there is a growing awareness of the necessity of using a mobile phone recycling service wherever possible. At the same time, it is now incredibly easy to do so.
