A wasteless xmas: recycle your old phone

One of Australia’s leading mobile phone e-waste managers has eatimed that there are more than 110,000 mobile phones and their accessories in Gold Coast homes.

Right now, they’re sitting in your third drawer or your office drawer or some other dark dusty place, but they could be recycled.

And Christmas is the perfect time to purge yourself of this toxic e-waste because MobileMuster has partnered with Salvation Army and will donate $2 to the charity for every kilo of e-waste collected in cities across Australia.

In a campaign called Old Phones for Good, your donation of an old phone to MobileMuster’s recycling program will help change the lives of Gold Coast residents, and indeed people all over Australia, thanks to the partnership with Salvation Army.

Rose Read, Recycling Manager for MobileMuster said that by recycling your old mobiles with MobileMuster you will be giving a gift that gives three times.

“One, helping those in need through the great work of the Salvos Stores. Two, a gift to our precious natural environment, by keeping old mobiles out of landfill.And three, a gift to yourself by de-cluttering your home or office of unused electronics,” said Rose.

Salvos Store spokesperson Edwina Morgan said the partnership was a perfect match helping both people in need and the environment.

“All profits from the Salvos Stores go to help the work of the Salvation Army. The additional funds raised as a result of recycling old mobiles with MobileMuster between now and 31 January will go to the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal that helps thousands of people during the Christmas period by distributing toys, Christmas lunch, food vouchers and hampers to Gold Coast families in need.”
