Consumers Told: Recycle Your Old Mobile

Recycling an old mobile phone for cash with Mazuma could be something worth considering, if recent suggestions are anything to go by.

According to research carried out by ICM for Consumer Focus, there are an estimated 85 million old phones in the UK.

Savvy consumers could send these to Mazuma and receive money while also helping to protect the environment.

Mobile phone expert at Consumer Focus Hannah Bullivant suggested Brits are wasting vast sums of money by throwing away their old handsets and adding to the country's "landfill mountains".

She said: "We discard millions of phones every year, with one in ten admitting they simply put their old handsets in the bin. These are sophisticated bits of kit that can still be used or recycled."

There are currently a huge range of new phones on offer and consumers could soon find themselves browsing the internet while on the move or listening to music on Spotify.
