As most are well aware surplus mobile phones are now becoming too plentiful and concerns have been raised by local, national and European governments as to how to curb the situation. Nowadays everybody has a spare mobile phone due to a recent upgrade or a broken battery, but in the eyes of many this is certainly not a good enough reason to leave them lying around and not depose of them correctly. In every effort to become a more eco friendly nation, the government has set about launching various recycling campaigns to make consumers aware of just how much damage they are doing without realising it to the environment.
Many are not aware of just how many parts of the mobile phone are actually recyclable. Whereas many believe that only the battery or perhaps the keypad are able to be recycled, in fact a staggering 96% of the phone can easily be put to good use. One particularly original way of encouraging citizens to be greener has been thought through by some food chains, in particular a pizza shop who offers free slices of pizza when the customer leaves their unwanted mobile phone in the “drop box”.
Others opt to exchange their old mobiles for cash, which is of obvious economical benefit to the customer; however should they opt for mobile phone recycling, they are also doing their bit for the environment.
At Mazuma Mobile, you can recycle your mobile phones for cash.
