Devon youngsters offered chance to recycle mobiles
24 June 2010 — 7:06 PM
Scores of children across Devon may be among the next people to recycle a mobile phone with Envirofone.
The county's green organisation, Don't Let Devon Go To Waste, has launched a campaign to coincide with the national Recycle Week, reports the Mid Devon Star.
Some 20 schools in the area have signed up to take part in the project, which will old items that can be recycled exchanged for a reward voucher.
The education institution with the most vouchers at the end of the scheme will win £500 to spend on garden equipment and products.
Councillor Gordon Hook told the newspaper: "Everyone knows that recycling old electrical items is far better than them ending up in landfill."
The campaign could encourage some youngsters to dispose of their mobile phone with a firm such as Envirofone in exchange for cash.
Envirofone promises to dispose of old handsets in an eco-friendly manner.
