Why it is a good idea to recycle your mobile phone

Throwing a mobile phone, or any other electrical device, into the trash is never a good idea. They are not biodegradable and could cause serious environmental problems for many years to come. Rather, you should always strive to recycle phones and other electronics.

Studies have found that each household in the UK owns, on average, three unused mobile phones. It seems silly that they should be left lying around doing nothing when you could earn some real cash if you sell your mobile to us at Mazuma Mobile.

Not only could you earn some extra money by selling your old and unused mobiles but you could also do your bit for the environment. Mobile phones that are still of a good standard can be refurbished and resold. This means that less new mobile phones will need to be produced, thus protecting valuable resources from being used.

It may surprise you to know that mobile phones contain valuable metals such as platinum, silver and copper. These can all be reused and turned into new phones which is a much better option than simply extracting more from the Earth.

Recycling old mobiles for cash could not be simpler. All you need to do is register with us and send in your phone. We will them access your phone and pay you accordingly into your bank account. We can then re-use and recycle your phones, ensuring that they are once again put to good use.
