It can be difficult to know of these things so I've decided to write the following article to help inform you of how to recycle and get cash in your pocket.
I hope you find the following article informative and helpful.
Do you know about mobile phone recycling? If not mobile phone recycling is where you sell your old, used or even broken phones for cash.
All you need to do is go online and use your favourite search engine, I would pop in something like 'Sell mobile for cash' into your search engine and away you go.
You should find several options and you can choose from there.
Personally, when I try to recycle my mobile I go to a comparison site so I can compare all the prices and the reputability of the site I'm selling to but that's entirely up to you.
How are handsets recycled? Well there are many different paths for them once they end up at the company and this is all dependent on what condition they're in.
If they are in good condition they are sent to third world countries to be sold at cheaper rates to less fortunate people.
This is great because it helps the third world countries but it also decreases the amount factories are used as less new mobile phones have to be made so less carbon dioxide is sent into the atmosphere and fewer natural resources are used.
If you phone is broken it will probably be used for parts to fix other phones which again means fewer new phones are produced.
If you phone in completely broken it will be correctly disposed of so it isn't thrown into landfills as this is bad for the environment.
If it gets put into a land fill the toxins in the phone will be released into natural water resources, wildlife and the surrounding environment.
