Recycling Phones

If you’ve just upgraded to a fantastic new Samsung Galaxy S5 or Sony Xperia Z2, or even gone for something more modest like a Motorola Moto G, you’ll likely have an old phone lying about. Are you planning on recycling it? If so, here’s how.

Recycle for charity

Many charities accept old phones as donations, recycling them and putting the money to good use. If you’re not short of cash it could be nice to do something for a good cause.

Recycle with your network

Many mobile networks will give you a lump sum of money for your old phone, making it very easy to trade it in. Most make it pretty easy to do this by simply entering the model number on their website, and even going so far as to send a freepost padded envelope out to you.
