Even though most mobile phones that are a few years old are perfectly operational, they are normally thrown away whenever a user buys a newer mobile phone. Indeed, there isn’t really much of a market for used mobile phones here in the UK as our consumer society is all about having the latest models rather than those that are merely functional.
However, the materials and metals which old mobile phones are made of can often cause harm to the environment when they are thrown away into landfill sites. For this reason, it is vitally important to recycle mobile phones instead of throwing them away.
But let’s think about it – can one person really help the environment by recycling an old phone?
Quite simply, the answer is “Yes”. Indeed, if everyone in the UK were to recycle their old mobile phone then around 2.5 thousand tonnes of electronic waste could be saved from Britain’s over-burdened landfill sites each year!
Here at Mazuma Mobile, we are proud to provide a service which not only benefits the environment but also benefits environmentally aware individuals’ wallets, too. We are passionate about what we do and are happy to pay good money to anyone who is willing to send us their old and unwanted mobile phones for recycling. This means that any person can sell Nokia mobile phones, Samsung phones or indeed, any type of phones for a good price and help the environment.
