A noted United Kingdom online mobile phone recycling company, Mobilephonerecycling.com, has recently started a faster and more efficient recycling service for the consumer. The service will not only provide the seller with some extra cash but will help the environment by limiting the number of discarded phones.
The company maintain they will settle your account by providing your cash within a week, and the seller will merely need to follow the directions on the company’s website. The company will give a quotation for the purchase of the phone and should the seller accept the quotation he is then provided with a freepost envelope. The seller will then post the phone to the company in the usual way.
According to the company, the seller will have the agreed amount in his hands within one week and he will be secure in the knowledge he has done his bit for the environment. A search bar will shortly be introduced to enable sellers to compare different recycling companies in addition to finding the best price for their used mobile phone.
Due to the ever increasing popularity of the latest mobile phones, consumers are continually seeking to upgrade to a more superior phone, resulting in many used and unwanted phones being discarded. In a 2009 statistics report, barely 7% of unused mobile phones in the country are recycled. Mobile phone users in this country replace their phones every 16 to 18 months resulting in nearly 26 million new phones coming on stream.
Mobile phone batteries are toxic and contain such materials as mercury and lead. These have a detrimental effect on the fertility of soil and are harmful to human beings and animals as well as the general environment. Quantities of these chemicals never dissipate. It is therefore important that a mobile phone is disposed of in the correct manner.
By making use of the recycling companies the mobile phone user is not only assisting in the continual fight against pollution but he is helping his fellow man. Having just a little extra cash will allow the user a far greater choice of mobile phones and perhaps he can even choose a new phone that would have been well out of his price range had he not recycled.
