Recycle Your Mobile
Recycle Your Mobile would like to invite all Sports Clubs in Norfolk to raise funds by joining their mobile phone recycling scheme
The recycling initiative is urging people to donate their spare mobile phones and help raise cash for their local sports club. For each recyclable phone donated a sports club will receive up to £10.00 to spend on new equipment, travel expenses, new kit or towards bigger projects like a new clubhouse.
It is estimated today that there is somewhere in the region of 60 million to 90 million unwanted handsets languishing in drawers and offices in the UK. With millions more new handsets being pumped into an already saturated market place each year at greatly subsidised prices, this mountain just continues to grow.
Recycling with Re:cycle Your Mobile, also guarantees that even items that cannot be reused or resold will not end up in landfill. Mobile phones and their batteries contain elements such as mercury, cadmium, nickel and gallium arsenide that if not disposed of carefully, can be extremely harmful to the environment. Around 9% cannot be reused or refurbished, these are recycled either to extract reusable elements such as copper or to be used as the raw material for anything from road sleepers to frisbees.
With all these old mobile phones lying around there should be plenty of money for Norfolk Sports Clubs to make from this recycling scheme.
