So what do you do with the old handsets?
While some of them get replaced because they’re broken a lot of them get replaced simply because the mobile operator gives you a new one for free (or close to it) as an upgrade.
So you end up with a house or office full of perfectly good phones, but no use for them.
Envirofone isn’t the only company that offers a phone recycling service, but it’s one of the few that I know of, which is why I mention them
Envirofone not only recycle old mobile phones, but they also give you money for it. While some of the lower end phones may only fetch a couple of euros, a higher end model could give you over €100, which is more than you’d get if you left it gathering dust.
You’re also doing your bit for the environment, so it’s a win win situation!
UPDATE: Just realised I can’t spell – post title fixed!
