Mobile recycling can protect the environment

Mobile phone manufacturer Motorola has unveiled a new digital set-top box that has taken the environment into consideration.

The Motorola DCX3501-M device has high-definition capabilities and is 33 per cent lighter than previous models, meaning less material was needed to make it.

In addition to this it is the first set-top to make use of post-consumer recycled plastic, is 100 per cent recyclable and uses 75 per cent recycled-content cardboard.

"As the cable industry continues to deliver increasing amounts of high-definition content, Motorola is always researching new opportunities to help our cable customers reduce their environmental footprint," said Larry Robinson, vice-president and general manager for Mobile Devices and Home.

He added the company is pleased to have developed a "compelling product" that will meet the changing needs of its customers.

Those hoping to help the environment could opt to recycle their old mobile phone for cash and might wish to keep a look out for new technology that is designed with reducing waste in mind.
