You could make quite a bit of money by selling your phone with musicMagpie, although the value will drop the longer you leave it lying around.
Phone recycle schemes help reduce the amount of e-waste sent to dumping grounds in some of the world's poorest regions. E-waste sent to these sites is processed in dangerous conditions and can lead to air, water and soil pollution.
Phone recyclers salvage many useful materials from old mobile phones. For every 1 million mobiles recycled, 35,724lbs of copper, 772lbs of silver and 75lbs of gold can be recovered.
There are plenty of reasons to recycle your phone: making some money, clearing clutter and helping the environment too. So don't chuck your phone away, or hold onto it for too long : recycle your mobiles and smartphones with musicMagpie!
