Have you ever heard of mobile phone recycling? Do not worry if you have not, until not too long ago, neither did we. Mobile phone recycling is not a new concept, but it is something that very few people are aware of and even fewer people are practicing it.
A mobile phone should not just be discarded with the normal trash. It contains certain electrical parts that can be harmful to the environment when not disposed of in the correct way. What very few people know is that recycling is not necessarily just the correct way of disposing of a mobile phone. Recycling can also mean that it is used again, or even that parts of it is used again,
At Mazuma Mobile we aim to sell as many of the old phones that we buy to communities where they can not afford to buy a new phone, or are not in a position where they can afford to take out a contract for a phone.
The phones that we cannot use will be discarded in the correct mobile phone recycling way. We are registered with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Authorised Treatment Facility and are ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Accredited.
By practicing correct mobile phone recycling and enabling people to use your phone again, you will be doing a great deed for the environment. And probably more importantly, you will be able to get some cash in your wallet. And would not want to get money for something that would have just been tucked away in a drawer or thrown out with the regular garbage?
