By recycling your old phone, you’ll not only be raising money towards something else, you’ll also be helping to save the environment. Use the comparison tool above to see which mobile phone recycling companies will give you the best price for your mobile. The newer the mobile the more you will get for it. You can get as much as £200 for an iPhone but a 5 year old Nokia 8310 for example will not get you more than a couple of quid. Some companies will pay you for phones that don’t work!
What happens to recycled mobile phones?
Good question ! Most of the old phones that are recycled are wiped clean of data and then put to use again in the global market. In many countries in Africa there is high demand for mobile phones. It is much better to reuse in this way than recycle but the worst thing that can happen is that an old mobile phone is thrown in the bin. Mobile batteries can be harmful to the environment if disposed of incorrectly. It may also be worth noting that in general you need to supply both the batteries and back covers along with the mobile phone that you intend to trade for cash.
How can I get more money for my old mobile?
If your old mobile phone is working you will get more for it. If you use the comparison tool above you can be sure of getting the price in the market but wait there’s more…. A couple of other ways you can make more money from mobile phone recycling would be to collect up phones from your friends and family. Some mobile recycling companies will send a courier to get the devices if you collect a certain number. Another tip is to take vouchers instead of cash. You can sometimes choose to get paid in vouchers from high street stores in which case you can e.g. an extra 10%. One of the best mobile phone recyclers (fonebank) now offers BACS payment, so you get paid straight into your bank account.
