Recycling your 2G Mobile Phone

Posted October 24, 2016

Over the next 12 months Australia’s network carriers Telstra, Optus and Vodafone will be closing their 2G mobile networks which means that 2G customers will need to upgrade their SIM card and possibly their mobile phone. If you are upgrading your mobile phone MobileMuster is encouraging all customers to recycle their old mobiles and their accessories.

MobileMuster provides a free recycling service that accepts all brands and types of mobile phones, plus their batteries, chargers and accessories. There are over 3,100 drop-off points around Australia for customers to recycle including all of the major phone retailers, alongside a free post back recycling satchel available from any Australia Post.
