National Recycling Week

MobileMuster is proud to be an Associate Sponsor of Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week 9-15 November 2020. National Recycling Week helps you better understand what happens to your waste and recycling beyond the bin.

We have some great ideas on how to reduce the impact of your mobile phones and improve your environmental footprint. If you have an old mobile phone at home going to waste think about reusing or recycling it. Encouraging more Australians to responsibly reuse and recycle their mobile phone will result in greater environmental benefits and positive climate change impacts Take a look at our National Recycling Week page for more informaiton. Planet Ark have also put together some great reosurces on how to host a Monday Muster at your workplace. 

Here are our top five tips for reducing the impact of your old mobile phones and accessories on the environment.

  1. We recycle more than the mobile phone. Don’t forget the old chargers, accessories, cases and smart watches.
  2. If you are going to sell an old phone don’t hesitate. The longer you keep it the more it will depreciate in value.
  3. When choosing a repair service, it is important to check that the technicians are trained and provide a repair warranty.
  4. Learn what happens to your mobile phone when it is recycled and the environmental benefits it delivers.
  5. When removing data on your mobile phone take a look at our instructional videos for Android and iOS.
