Help BBC Children In Need; Recycle your mobile

What Mobile
November 2, 2008

Fancy raising some money for charity without having to actually spend your own money? Go on, admit it, you support charity but in this current climate it’s understandable you might wish to look after yourself first.

But, if you’ve got a bunch of old handsets gathering dust in a drawer or cupboard, then it’s time to put them to good use!

For every mobile phone you send in, BBC Children In Need will receive between £4 and £80, depending on the condition of the handset and its specification.

In 2007, £350,000 was raised in this way – but there are still millions of handsets out there so have a good rummage around.

To do your part, just pop your phone in an envelope and send it to;

Freepost
BBC Children In Need

Or alternatively, collect a freepost envelope at any 3 mobile phone store.

The phones will be handled by Regenersis, a leading mobile phone recycling company. They will refurbish the phone and send them to developing countries.

Any handsets not suitable for re-use will be recycled to ensure nothing ends up in landfill.

Terms & Conditions (taken from the Regnersis website):

£80 will be donated for working handsets with a 5 megapixel camera.  If the handset is not working, the donation will be reduced to £20.

£20 will be donated for working handsets with a 3 megapixel camera.  If the handset is not working, the donation will be reduced to £5.

£4 will be donated for working handsets with a basic camera or no camera.  If the handset is not working, the device will be safely recycled.
