recycle mobile phones

Reusing and recycling mobile phones is an easy and important way to help the environment. Mobile phones and e-waste contains a number of toxins that need to be disposed of safely. Many of these toxic substances — including antimony, arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, copper, lead, nickel, and zinc — belong to a class of chemicals known as persistent toxins, which linger in the environment for long periods without breaking down. By recycling you are helping keep these toxic chemicals out of landfill.

Although e-waste is highly toxic, every part of an electronic item can be reused and demanufactured. Most mobile phones that are replaced by upgrades in Australia are still in working condition so they can easily be reused. If they are not in working condition then the mobile phone can be broken down into spare parts and used to repair damaged phones. Reuse avoids unnecessary hazardous disposal and reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by manufacturing new products.

PhoneCycle gives businesses an option to make a big difference to the environment by recycling their mobile phones and as opposed to quickly discarding obsolete electronic items.
