Consumers looking to generate cash by recycling mobile phones may also be interested in some money-saving advice from the Manchester Evening News.

This week, the publication listed a number of ways in which households can reduce their expenditure by changing the way they behave - with many of the solutions also offering eco-friendly benefits.
