Admittedly now may not be the traditional time for a spring clean but if you have not sorted through those messy cupboards and draws and checked in the attic for many months, you may be sitting on a gold mine without realising it.
When you get a new phone, you might well do what many individuals who have just received such an item do and cast your old one aside.
After all, you’re excited about your purchase and cannot wait to start using it. What happens to the old handset may be of little concern at this stage.
In this way, many thousands of phones across the UK and abroad get lost under beds, behind books and at the bottom of draws.
Not only is this a waste of resources that could contribute towards global warming, but it is also a large waste of money.
By failing to engage in mobile phone recycling, you could be missing out on a chance to provide your finances with a much needed boost.
Simply tidying your house may turn up a number of old devices. By collecting these items, you will be able to get rid of old mobiles for cash.
And phone recycling couldn’t be easier these days. All you have to do is go online and find out how much you could receive for the handsets. Then, as long as you are satisfied with this, you will be sent an envelope to post the devices in and then wait to receive your money.
