Mobile recycling could help the planet

There are many people out there who have gadgets they no longer need that can be turned into cash, one charity spokesman has advised.

A representative for Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) told the Sheffield Star this week that recycling mobile phones is something most consumers can get involved in.

Sal Chapman, a regional representative for the charitable organisation, said the group is confident that a number of unused handsets are "tucked away" and could be used to contribute to a worthy cause.

He concluded: "By simply recycling your mobile phone, we can raise the vital funds we need to train guide dogs. The impact that a guide dog can have on someone's life is priceless."

GDB was formed in 1931 and relies on donations due to the fact it receives no government funding.

It is just one of a number of foundations that could benefit from a mobile recycling drive in the workplace.
