Could your family benefit from recycling an old mobile?

Mobile recycling can protect the environment.

A woman has revealed that mobile recycling allowed her family to upgrade to a range of new mobile phones to better suit their needs.

Lisa Montgomery, writing for Electronic House, said that her family had amassed a collection of old handsets in the kitchen drawer over a number of years and decided that it was time to recycle them.

By doing so she could have helped to protect the environment as if devices are disposed of with the normal household waste they could be sent to landfill.

She said selling the old phones meant that: "I finally got a phone with a keyboard for texting, as did my daughter and son. My husband sprang for an iPhone."

Mobile phone recycling with Envirofone could be worth considering for people with an old handset lying around their house.

The issue of mobile recycling has recently been in the news as at the start of April, the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme comes into effect and some companies will be required to reduce their energy consumption.
