Boulder, CO, September 09, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Consumers in the UK have been taking advantage of the unique program launched by mobile recyclers like mobilephonerecycling.com, where they can cash in their old mobile phones. This is a win-win for all, as people get to recycle mobile phones and save money in return, while the environment is saved from another hazardous waste being dumped.
The process is simple to understand and easy to follow. All that users have to do is to follow the steps mentioned on the site, and receive a quote for the old phone. If they agree to the quote, the company will send them a pre-paid envelope. They are then required to send the phone to the mobile phone recycling (http://www.mobilephonerecycling.com) company. The quoted amount is sent as a check within a week.
The company also plans to launch a search bar to help consumers compare mobile phone recycling prices offered by different companies and get quotes on the best price for their used phone.
Electronic waste has become a big issue in countries all over the world. While there exists several ways to dispose/recycle them safely, there lacks awareness among people. In fact a recent estimate by the United Nations Environment Program estimates that anywhere between 20 and 50 million tons of electronic wastes are dumped every year.
Developed countries like the US and UK are trying to recycle mobile phones (http://www.mobilephonerecycling.com). Countries like India and China have joined the bandwagon as well. In fact, in some countries like Africa, communication has skipped the landline stage and has gone directly from having no land line phones to everyone has a mobile phone stage.
This program launched by the company allows people to sell their phones rather than dumping them away carelessly.
“This new program launched by us makes sense, because every user is sure to think-Why don’t I sell my mobile phone rather than toss it away carelessly or let it pile in my drawers,” says the spokesperson for mobilephonerecycling.com.
Phones sold by users are recycled to extract metals like copper, gold, silver, palladium, cobalt, and very rare metals like hafnium.
Mobilephonerecycling.com is a leading company in the online mobile phone recycling market & helps tens of thousands of people to recycle mobile phones.
