Mobile Phones Waste Disposal

In the past, old mobile phones would often end up in landfill at the end of their life, but it is becoming increasingly easier to safely recycle them. If your mobile phone cannot be repaired or salvaged for parts, it should be properly disposed of. Mobile phones shouldn’t be disposed of in household waste and can be recycled but cannot be mixed in with regular home recycling like paper and plastic. Both mobile phones and their charging cables and accessories count as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment or WEEE and must be disposed of correctly.

Modern mobile phones and smartphones are made up of many complex materials such as metals, plastics, glass, and electrical components. Mobiles as well as other electronics can often release dangerous or toxic substances that can harm you and the environment when disposed of incorrectly. For example, smartphones can release mercury during the disposal process, which needs to be handled correctly to prevent contamination. If disposed of correctly, up to 80% of phone materials can be recycled and reused.

If you’re not sure how to dispose of a mobile phone and want to prevent your device from unnecessarily going to landfill, The Mick George Group’s waste management services can safely recycle WEEE waste such as mobile phones and more. We guarantee that your unwanted and unusable phones will be safely disposed of according to regulations to minimise environmental impact.
