Lost without your mobile

It’s no surprise that so many people now use mobile phone recycling services. Consumers tend to go through a lot of these devices and they can be worth a tidy sum, even second-hand.

Meanwhile, if you feel lost without your mobile, you’re not alone. Research carried out by security app provider Lookout found that 58 per cent of Americans don’t go for more than an hour without checking their smartphones and those aged between 18 and 34 were the most likely to look at their handsets frequently.

The Mobile Mindset Study also found that nearly seven in ten people polled had lost their phones at some point and some of these individuals felt “sick” with worry when they couldn’t locate their devices.

If you’ve recently started using a new mobile and want to recycle your old one, you’ve come to the right place.

The Importance of Recycling

As a nation, we are becoming much more conscious about the need to recycle. In the last few years, the number of UK households which recycle regularly has risen to nearly 40%, thanks to schemes by councils making it much easier for us to recycle from home. This increase suggests that consumers will recycle if the process is simplified. Collecting all your glass bottles and jars to take to the local bottle bank is much less appealing than simply putting them in a recycling box in your house and remembering to lift it outside on the right day.

Recycling isn’t just for bottles and cans, however. There are all kinds of products that you can recycle to help both the environment and others, and mobile phone recycling is just one of these. We’ve aimed to make the process of recycling your phone just as easy as recycling those glass bottles on your doorstep, but first of all – just why should you recycle your phone?

Why Recycle?

Mobile phones contain toxic substances such as Cadmium, Lead Solder, Palladium and Rhodium. If thrown away without being recycled, these can leak into the environment causing damage and contamination. With an estimated four redundant handsets per household in the UK, and with consumers upgrading their phones every year on average, this leads to millions of toxic handsets lying around with the potential to harm our planet.

The usual routine on upgrading a phone is that you’ll keep hold of your former handset for a while, until you realise that you couldn’t go back to it because it’s so outdated, or even because you’ve upgraded even further. At this point you might think, “I wonder if I should sell my Nokia that’s been stuck in a drawer for ages?” but after a quick search you’ll find that it’s been so long that it’s hardly worth the effort and you might as well just throw it in a bin.

We’re here to encourage every mobile phone owner in the UK to stop throwing away their old Nokia phones and other redundant handsets, but to recycle a Nokia phone, make yourself some cash, save the environment and help others in developing countries at the same time. Plus, the sooner you do it, the more money you are likely to make for yourself.

What Happens to My Old Phone?

First and foremost, you’ll pocket a nice cheque, bank transfer or Argos voucher (you choose) for yourself and you’ll know that your phone’s not going to be making its way to a landfill site to leak its toxic chemicals into the soil anytime soon, so that’s win-win for starters.

Secondly, your phone will not be recycled in the sense that its parts will be processed to be used elsewhere or destroyed in a sustainable manner. Our recycling philosophy is to reuse your old phones by sending them to developing markets in places such as China, Africa, Pakistan and India. Communication is such a vital part of development these days, and by sending your old phones to these nations, we are collectively helping them to advance.

Make Money From Your Blackberry

The mobile phone industry moves at a tremendous rate and can very quickly turn what is a current phone into a retro-looking embarrassment. Of course, this isn’t to say that the phone isn’t capable, it is just the speed of technological change in this intensive industry. With the recent news that Blackberry are to shift focus to the business market thus lessening focus on the commercial sector, many people will be looking to cash in on their phones asking “how can I sell my Blackberry quick?” Given that Android and Apple are coming to dominate the mobile phone industry almost entirely, many are now looking to jump ship. However, this isn’t to say that the Blackberry is incapable or is behind the times, it is still a great smartphone that can deliver a number of different functionalities including great apps.

At Mazuma Mobile we can offer very good prices on current and older generation Blackberry phones. If you are looking to sell mobile phone right now, then our store can offer options for you. We can buy your working Blackberry Bold for a great price, although you will have to act fast. Phones can lose value over a matter of months, so it is important to get your phone to us straight away.

Many people don’t want the hassle of having to sell their phone through eBay, particularly if it is not functional. We can also pay you for non-working Blackberries so long as they are in a complete state and have the batter with them.

The Environmental Value of Mobile Phone Recycling

The more pessimistic amongst you may wonder whether mobile phone recycling is all that it is cracked up to be. After all, surely the only tangible benefit is that is that there are a few less phones lying around– and that doesn’t sound like a big deal.

Sadly, the issues go far deeper than that.

Decay & harm

It has been suggested that mobile phones can release poisonous substances into the environment if they are left to decay. Therefore, if we don’t recycle mobile phones, these harmful substances may well end up in our grossly overloaded landfill sites. As well as preventing the release of harmful substances, recycling mobile phones can also dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and keep valuable materials such as copper and precious metals out of landfills.

Recycling processes

When mobile phones are recycled, they either get repaired and passed on as entire units for further use or they get broken down into component parts so that they can be used in other phones. Happily, both of these processes significantly reduce the need for energy and raw materials.

By recycling your mobile phone, you can help to conserve precious resources and reduce the effect which harmful substances may have on the environment. So please; don’t throw away your old mobile when it falls out of favour – instead think “I’ll sell my Blackberry (or whichever) phone to Mazuma Mobile as I’m sure they’ll do something good with it”.

And you can rest assured we will.

The Human Value of Mobile Phone Recycling

Most people are now quite aware of the benefits of mobile phone recycling. Indeed, the fact that you can make quick, easy and sometimes quite significant amounts of money from recycling mobile phones means that there are very few people that aren’t aware of it. However, not so many people are aware that the recycling of mobile phones can be of enormous benefit to people in developing countries who are often far less fortunate than us here in the UK.

Really? How?

Well, access to landline telephones is often hard to come by for many people in developing countries as they are either expensive to set up or completely absent. Therefore, mobile phones can be of enormous benefit as they can provide people with a much needed means of telecommunication. As well as supporting individuals and families, recycled mobile phones also help businesses to run more effectively. Indeed, recycled phones which are sent to countries such as China, India and Pakistan not only help to keep people in touch; they also help developing markets to flourish and thereby increase financial opportunities and quality of life.

However, as good as all this sounds, you must bear in mind that you can only sell Nokia mobile phones and the rest if they are in decent working order. Remeber, mobile phones can only be recycled if they switch on and off and have no significant marks or scratches on the bodywork or screen.
