By dropping your mobile phone into one of our Mobile Musterers (say that a few times quickly!) you're saving the precious resources used in your phone from landfill, and giving them new life. And PhoneCycle will donate the proceeds to Vets for Climate Action to support us to continue to promote sustainable veterinary care, advocate for climate action and protect biodiversity. 

PhoneCycle will either break down phones and accessories into their different component materials, or refurbish them. PhoneCycle are able to recycle more than 95% of your phone's materials. Phones in working condition are repaired, securely wiped and their lifespan extended.  Phones that can be repaired are refurbished and reused!

Refurbishing or recycling electronic devices supports the circular economy and contribute to sustainable tech consumption, and minimises the demand for new products and very effectively reduces the need to extract further raw materials from the earth.

Frequent Ask Questions

What types of devices can be dropped off?

Any mobile phones, tablets and laptops (plus their cords) of any age and in any condition.

PhoneCycle will securely erase the date from your device using a data sanitisation solution.
