Recycling Mobile Phones

When your current mobile isn’t giving you maximum efficiency anymore, check with your mobile phone provider to see if you are entitled to a free upgrade.

People tend to stay with their phone company for a number of years so you could be surprised. When upgrading your mobile phone – recycle the old one consciously for our environment. Most retail mobile phone outlets provide recycling bins for the collection of your old phone.

FACTS: Over 90% of the materials in mobile phones can be recovered to make new products. The gold, silver, nickel, cadmium and plastics in the mobile phones can be turned into jewellery, stainless steel, batteries and plastic fence posts and pallets. The mobile phone industry claims that you can recover the same amount of gold from 50,000 handsets as from mining 110 tons of gold ore. (Source: Australia Mobile Telecommunications Association).

If you need to upgrade your mobile phone, consider the option of getting a handheld PDA (or Personal Digital Assistant), a Blackberry or, of course, an iPhone, to streamline your appointments, contacts, tasks and other important information.
