Kids take up the recycling challenge

Australian school students competed in MobileMuster’s national recycling challenge. Over 150 preschools, primary and secondary schools took part and set up a muster at their school to collect mobile phones and accessories for recycling.

“It’s encouraging to see students of all age groups and from all parts of the country get so excited about recycling both at school and at home. Congratulations to all of our challenge winners,” said Spyro Kalos, Head of MobileMuster.
