Sending your phone with our Enviropack
Royal Mail now class mobile phones as a restricted item when sent in the post.

Some recyclers think you should find your own box, we don’t.
Our Enviropack contains:

Before you send your phone remember to erase the phone memory.

What happens to your mobile phone?
As the name suggests we take our Environmental responsibilities very seriously. We believe in a sustainable environment and that is why reuse is always our first port of call in the recycling process.
Slinging one mobile phone in the bin might appear to be OK. But there are an estimated 4 mobile phones per household in the UK that are not used. Mobile phones are not like banana skins, they don’t break down on their own, so imagine if everyone binned them? First there is the money that would be wasted, then the staggering size of the mountain of electronic waste.
100% of the mobile phones we receive are reused. In most cases they are sold to be refurbished.
If a phone is beyond economical repair then we send the phone off to a recycling plant in the UK.
Why aren’t we called Envirophone?
We often wonder that! The name Envirofone is obviously composed of the two main elements of our business: enviro and phone. This became Envirophone, but when the company was started for some unknown reason they deemed it trendier to call it Envirofone, with an f. There’s nothing we can do about it now, it’s too late to go back so we will carry on looking illiterate.
Why should I sell my mobile?
The question is probably more why wouldn’t you sell your old mobile phone?!
Not only is it environmentally more friendly thing to do, but you can also get some cash, quickly and easily.
Saving up for Christmas
No matter what time of the year, it’s always wise to start thinking about Christmas. Plus if you get a new phone for Christmas, then why not sell your old one?!
Get some cash for your holidays
How often do we read “my thousand pound holiday mobile phone bill nightmare” about someone who forgot to turn their roaming off, or had a very expensive Facebook habit? Well why not sell your old mobile and put the cash towards a holiday or your spending money?
Your mobile is worth less every week.
Like everything, mobile phones depreciate quickly! The longer you leave it lying around the less you’re going to get!
What’s the point in a spare?
Think about, how many times have you actually used your “spare” mobile? Once, never? Would you keep £100 in a drawer, just on the off chance that you might need it one day, but every day the amount was getting lower and lower? No, I didn’t think so!
I hate my phone
Made a mistake with the upgrade this year? All your mates downloading apps and you’re…..well, not. Can’t stand the thought of using that bit of tin for another minute let alone 20 odd months. Then why not sell it and put the money towards getting the phone you actually want?
