As I have mentioned before about the electronic waste problems that are mounting at this post here, I mentioned that mobile phones are able to be recycled in Australia. However the problem is that many phone owners do not know what to do with them or how to dispose of them once they have out lived their usefulness.
Here is a great idea and campaign details that have been sent to me by my friends at MobileMuster (thanks Victoria!).
With an estimated 14 to 16 million old and unused phones stashed away in cupboards and drawers at home and work in Australia alone, there is a massive opportunity to recycle and get more trees into the ground to sequester CO2.
- Drop them off at your mobile phone retailer / local collection point – to find out where go to www.mobilemuster.com.au or call 1300 730 070
- Post them in by picking up a free MobileMuster recycling satchel from Australia Post
- Post them in by printing off a reply paid mailing label from www.mobilemuster.com.au
