Envirofone 'recycles 1.8m phones in a year'
8 December 2009 — 5:11 PM
Envirofone - the trading name of Eazyfone Ltd - claims to have arranged for some 1.8 million mobile phones to be reused or recycled within the past 12 months.
The news comes as the firm has been named on the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 list as one of the country's fastest-growing companies.
And Nick Brown, chief executive officer of Eazyfone, added that the firm has now planned an "ambitious expansion strategy" for the next 12 months.
He added this will allow the firm to"significantly grow our position as the leading value recycling brand for consumers and business partners in the handheld devices sector".
Last year, the Macclesfield-based firm used its Fones4Schools and FoneAid brand banners to raise nearly £2.5 million for educational institutions and charities across the UK.
Some 95 per cent of the phones received by the company are either re-used or repaired and sold all over the world.
