We consider a phone broken if it has any of the following faults:
While we buy most phones, there are a few handsets we can’t buy. These include phones that are snapped in half completely, reported lost or stolen, barred by a network, blacklisted by CheckMEND or identified as counterfeit.
Throwing your phone away is bad for the environment, with one mobile phone battery estimated to contain nough chemicals to pollute 60,000 litres of water!
Predictions suggested that 49.8 million metric tons of e-waste would be produced in 2018.

If you recycle your old mobile phone, you help to reverse this trend and decrease your carbon footprint at the same time.

We recycle broken phones in two ways. The first, if possible, is to repair and refurbish your old phone so it can go to a new home. If we can’t do that, we’ll recycle your phone and its components in a responsible and safe manner. Either way, you can rest assured that your old phone won’t damage the environment.
