How does iPhone recycling work?

iPhone recycling works by trading it into a trusted service like us, who’ll pay you for your old device after providing a valuation.

Perhaps you’re done with your iPhone and want cash to upgrade to a new one. Instead of keeping it in a drawer “just in case”, you could give it a new lease of life when you recycle your iPhone with musicMagpie!

Why should I recycle my iPhone?

The UK alone produces 25kg per person - way above the European average of 20kg. Globally, we produce over 50 million tonnes of e-waste - and phones have been reported to be the worst culprit.

Plus, 74% of Apple’s carbon footprint comes from the manufacturing process, with just 17% coming from actual use. The stats are staggering enough to make you want to do something about this growing issue!

It’s common knowledge that all of this waste is terrible for the environment. When you recycle your iPhone, other phones, or tech items, you save tonnes of e-waste from entering landfill. In fact, by recycling your iPhone you can:

  • Help preserve the planet’s precious materials
  • Reduce carbon emissions that are harming the environment and vital ecosystems
  • Promote a circular economy - where materials can be extracted from existing tech rather than mined unnecessarily.

What does musicMagpie do with old iPhones?

Before we test your iPhone, we’ll remove all casing and screen protectors.

Every iPhone is professionally cleaned before we put it under our 90-point check system by the leading industry software ‘Phonecheck’. This also includes the removal of any personal data that might have been left on the device.

Then, based on the results of our checks, we’ll pay your quoted valuation. If there are any faults, then we’ll come back to you with a revised offer. Assuming everything goes ahead, we’ll then assess whether the phone can be refurbished, or used for spare parts to refurbish another device. If we can’t refurbish your old iPhone, we’ll send it to an accredited recycler that will recycle your device ethically and responsibly.
