Mobile phone manufacturers are increasingly feeling the pressure from the government in regard to enhancing mobile phone recycling. As technology evolves increasingly worldwide, people are more than often replacing phone models in a bid to have access to the latest technology at their fingertips.
This has therefore left behind millions of obsolete phones that could end up being disposed of in improper and unsafe ways. So therefore the British government and the European Union are increasing the pressure for solutions to this pressing problem.
What many people don’t realise is that as mobile phone depreciates, they can release substances that are in fact harmful to the environment. Whilst people understand this well in regard to items such as cars or computers, many find it hard to believe that a tiny little handset could do similar damage, but it can.
Mobile phone batteries are home to detrimental chemicals such as lead, which can result in the contamination of landfill sites. The improper disposal of such items can lead to these chemicals finding their way into our soil and even our water supplies! If this happens, the effects won’t just reap environmental disadvantages, but could also affect our families.
This is why the government is a high-flying supporter of phone recycling for cash, as companies like us at Mazuma Mobile ensure that mobile phones are recycled properly and that they can be made into new products or used elsewhere in the world, helping to keep our Earth in good condition and paying our users for their good deed.
