Old phone + mobile recycling = environmental consciousness

With the current world wide drive to do everything we can to try and slow down global warming, it has become increasingly important for each one of us to try and do what we can to do our bit. Recycling is just one of many steps that we can take and should not be shrugged off as a hassle.

At Mazuma Mobile we understand this very well. We know what harm the incorrect disposal of certain electronic devices can cause to the environment and have found a way to try and help this. We focus specific on mobile recycling. We are a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Authorised Treatment Facility and are ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Accredited.

We do not necessarily do the traditional kind of mobile recycling with al the phones that we receive. Most of them are cleaned up and we then sell them in markets where the average income is not high enough for the residents to be able to afford new phones. In modern terms the phrase ‘re-use’ have become another way to say recycling. This is because the equipment are used again, and not actually disposed of.

At Mazuma we do make use of traditional recycling with some of the phones, but only if they are not fit for re use. So by creating the space for mobile recycling we are not only making sure that these electrical devices that can be bad for the environment are not being disposed of in a bad way, but we are also providing mobile users in less fortunate places access to phones that they might not have been able to afford before.
