*Since AMTA changed recyclers in June 2011 greater detail on the types of accessories received is now being provided. Specifically, separating display handsets from mobile phone accessories. As display handsets are not a mobile phone component and represent a material volume it was considered inappropriate to include them in collection weights and rates for 2012/13 figures. The 2011/12 figures have also been adjusted. Prior to 2011/12 display handsets were reported as accessories. No adjustments have been made to figures prior to 2011/12.
