Why Recycle?

Mobile Phone Recycling

Here at Cash4Phone.co.uk our aim is to encourage the recycling of old and unused mobile phones. Every year around 80 million mobile phones are discarded in non-recycling bins and often end up in landfill sites, etc.

Our aim is to cut the number of mobile phones going into landfill and help encourage the growth of third world countries in Africa and Eastern Europe by improving communication links.

Discarded mobile phones at landfill sites can cause massive problems in the future as they can leak toxic waste into the earth, and into river systems, or agricultural land. They contain dangerous chemicals such as cadmium, which can be highly carcinogenic, and dangerous metals such as lead, nickel, mercury or lithium to name but a few. Lead can also cause both liver and neurological problems, and many of these elements cannot decompose.

Other health problems such as genetic or reproductive defects, nervous system problems, can also be caused by these dangerous metals.
