MobileMuster has been partnering with local councils for over 12 years to make recycling accessible and community-friendly. It works with 370 councils around Australia to help divert thousands of tonnes of non-renewable resources out of landfill and back into the manufacture of new products.
“Councils play an important role in offering convenient public drop-off points and educating the community on how to recycle responsibly. Over the last 12 years local councils have collected almost 40 tonnes of mobile phone components,” says Spyro Kalos, Recycling Manager, MobileMuster.
Positive partnerships with local councils are a key factor in the success of the government accredited mobile phone recycling program. Each year MobileMuster attracts more local government partners who continue to increase collections for the program.
If your council doesn’t currently participate in the MobileMuster program and is interested in getting involved you can register online or call 02 8920 3555. Once registered MobileMuster can provide you with free collection units tailored for admin centres, libraries and waste transfer sites, plus resources to promote the program.
Councils have until the end of April to organise their final collections so they can be counted towards their total collections.
The awards are based on the council who has collected the most mobile phone components for recycling between 1 May 2017 and 30 April 2018. The Top Collector in each state and territory as well as a Top Collector Per Capita will be announced at the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) National General Assembly in Canberra in June 2018.
