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:
- Australian Conservation Foundation
- Cancer Council
- Cerebral Palsy Alliance
- The Children’s Hospital at Westmead
