Recycle a mobile

Do some good and support Landcare Australia

How can you, an old phone, and a great idea protect our environment?

MobileMuster has partnered with Landcare Australia to restore vulnerable habitats in local communities. Every phone recycled in August will enable Landcare Australia to plant trees and shrubs, protecting our waterways and diverse wildlife.

We’re aiming is to recycle over 20,000 mobile phones this month. The funds raised will help Landcare Australia undertake a wetland restoration project, working together with the West Torrens community along the Brown Hill Creek in South Australia. Terms and conditions apply, read more.


All MobileMuster collection sites in Victoria are currently closed due to COVID-19. However you can recycle at home by ordering a free mailing label. The mailing label will be posted to you but it may take a little longer to arrive. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you stay safe.

How it works?

About Landcare Australia

Landcare Australia is the national not-for profit that works in partnership with multiple stakeholders to support the Landcare community with funding and capacity building opportunities for on-ground projects. Landcare Australia develops campaigns to raise awareness of Landcare to increase participation and to attract corporate, philanthropic and government support. The funding raised supports the Landcare community to achieve a diverse range of positive outcomes. These include a sustainable approach to integrated land management, natural habitat restoration, enhancing biodiversity, building resilience in Australia’s food and farming systems, and creating social cohesion and wellbeing in communities.

The MobileMuster partnership will help Landcare Australia undertake a riparian restoration project, working together with the West Torrens community in South Australia. The project goal is to improve the area and quality of habitat present along Brown Hill Creek, beside Adelaide Airport and improve links between the coast and the Hills, by planting approximately 2,000 plants. Revegetation works undertaken as part of this project will take 12 months to complete. Community Landcare groups, the local Indigenous land managers – the Kaurana people and landowners have strong stewardship of the project, and will undertake care management beyond the initial 12 month period of the project.



Local indigenous plants are being established on the Brown Hill Creek site.
