They’re Calling On You

Recycle your old mobile phone to help protect wildlife.

MobileMuster partners with Zoos across Australia to raise much needed funds and support the Zoos’ conservation of wildlife. Mobile phones are created through mining of materials in precious wildlife habitats, destroying them in the process. MobileMuster is working with Zoos to protect those spaces.

Get involved

All you have to do is head to one of our participating Zoos listed below and drop-off your old mobile phones and accessories for recycling.  MobileMuster will donate funds to each Zoo when they book in those phones for collection and recycling.

If you want to maximise your impact, get your work or school to collect in bulk. See how here.

Learn more below about how each zoo is able to support primate conservation by recycling mobile phones.

Get your school or business involved.

If your school or business wants to help raise funds for any of the above habitats, then follow the instructions below:

  1. Collect 10 or more mobile phones, along with any chargers and accessories.
  2. Keep mobile phone batteries in devices where possible. Any loose batteries require their terminals to be sealed (use tape to do this) and then tied together with rubber bands top to tail. Place the batteries in a plastic bag and then into the box. Swollen, damaged and/or leaking batteries, or non-mobile phone batteries are NOT to be included in the box.
  3. Use an undamaged sturdy box. Fill the box to the top with product to minimize movement during transportation. Use packing paper, crumpled paper or newspaper to fill the box and prevent movement of the product if necessary. You can follow our packing instructions here.
  4. Seal the box securely to ensure nothing can fall out during transportation.
  5. Book in a free collection using the form below, and nominate which Zoo you are supporting.
  6. Once your booking has been confirmed, you will receive labels from MobileMuster. Print these off and attach to each box.
  7. The box/es are now ready to be collected. Our courier partner will arrive within three business days.
  8. Feel good knowing that by recycling old phones you’ve raised funds to support wildlife conservation.
