Many people don’t know that you can recycle mobile phones for cash. And those that do sometimes think it’s too complicated to bother, or assume they won’t get enough money from it to make it worth while. But it’s actually a lot easier than you might think.
Many companies that recycle phones will give you easy instructions on how to get some money for them. They usually offer this information on their websites, and it’s generally as simple as getting a free post envelope, popping your pone in, and then sending it off. You will then receive a cheque in the post. Sometimes you can even find out how much your phone is worth before you send it off.
For those that want to collect old phones from family and friends to raise money for charity, or even just to make a little extra cash, phone recycling can be quite profitable. Ask everyone you know to let others that you are collecting old phones. You could even make a website or Facebook page so that people in your area can bring their phones to you.
Remember to read the information thoroughly when sending phones back to make sure you get it done right. If you have questions or don’t understand something, it’s always best to try to contact the company first to ask before sending the phones off.
It’s as simple as that. And if you are getting a new phone soon anyway, what do you have to lose?
