Law firm encourages mobile phone recycling
14 May 2009 — 5:10 PM
People in Devon are being encouraged to recycle mobile phones to not only be more eco-friendly but to help raise money for charity.
According to the Express & Echo's online pages, Slee Blackwell has arranged for the receptions of its five offices to accept old handsets for this purpose.
It will then recycle them and send a portion of the money to the Devon Community Foundation, keeping some of the cash to keep the operation afloat.
John Hasson is an associate solicitor at the firm and said it may be tempting for those who want to contribute to local neighbourhoods.
"[The mobile phones] can be worth £50, or some can be as little as £2.50," he explained. "I am a keen believer that you should do what you can for the environment and every little bit that you do helps."
Recycling a mobile phone could also be a good way to raise money for the cost of a newer and better handset.
