Consumers that would like to do their bit to protect the environment could help to do so by recycling an old mobile phone.

The Environment Agency has announced that businesses that are involved in importing, rebranding or manufacturing electrical or electronic equipment must register with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations.

“We are happy to give advice to businesses about their obligations and I would urge anyone needing guidance to call us on 08708 506 506 or visit our website,” said Yorkshire WEEE team leader Peter Stevenson.

Electronic waste can often be sent to landfill, which can prove harmful to the environment. The EU introduced the WEEE regulations in an attempt to more effectively handle this kind of waste.

People could make a positive step themselves by recycling their used phones for cash rather than letting it go to waste.
