High street chemists, Boots, are now taking mobiles as a way to promote recycling among consumers. Boots is offering those interested a simple way to trade in old mobiles, since you can simply head over to their website, enter the phone model, and then see what your options are.
The website also provides browsers with plenty of useful tips such as how you can recycle other electrical items that previously may have never even crossed your mind as reusable. Of course, there are plenty of online mobile recycling websites that will mail you an envelope to return a mobile in, but Boots allows you to simply walk into one of their hundreds of stores and grab your own envelope so that it gets off on its way much quicker.
The only downside is that there is not any hard cash offers for an old mobile, but anytime that you choose to sell Boots a mobile you receive points that will continue to build up on the company’s Advantage Card and after thirty days have passed you can trade them in for items such as cosmetics, toiletries, food, and many other products at any Boots stores.
Outside of mobile phones, Boots will also take trade-ins for digital cameras, printer cartridges, MP3 players, and several other electrical items all of which count of advantage points. Within a six month period households are allowed to trade in up to six devices so you can wait and add up points for even better treats at the store.
