recycle mobile phones

Most Australians upgrade their mobile phones every 18 to 24 months but what happens to your disused phones? Over 80% of mobile phone users either leave their old handsets gathering dust in storage or pass their handset on. It's estimated there are over 22 million unwanted mobiles in homes around Australia.

PhoneCycle provides Australians with an easy and rewarding mobile phone recycling service that removes disused handsets from storage and diverts from landfill.

Every business has a different incentive to recycle mobile phones. The three main incentives are environmental, social and financial. At PhoneCycle we can assist you whatever your reason for wanting to recycle mobile phones.


Reusing and recycling mobile phones ensures harmful toxins are diverted from landfill.

We aim to reuse all handsets or harvest and retain parts from faulty equipment for use in repairing other phones. Our priority is to reuse mobile phones because it reduces the need for raw materials and energy used in manufacturing new products. If they can’t be reused, over 90% of their materials can be recycled.


Develop your corporate social responsibility by donating the proceeds from phone recycling to:

  • Cancer Council
  • Australian Conservation Foundation
  • Doctors Without Borders
  • Engineers without Borders
  • Head Space
  • Mission Australia
  • Westmead Children’s Hospital
  • World Wildlife Fund

Sending your disused phones in for reuse can also provide vital communications to developing countries. The phones your company no longer uses can encourage economic growth, foster business development and wider market access.


Mobile phones decrease in value over time. Your company can maximise your return from mobile phone recycling by implementing a mobile phone recycling policy to capture handsets at the end of their useful life.

We provide a free courier collection and asset valuation. If you are not completely satisfied with the quote, we will return your mobile phones free of charge.

If you or your company would be interested in protecting the environment, building your Corporate Social Responsibility or generating revenue then contact us today!
