Recycling old mobile phones

Do you find people whispering behind your back…have you ever thought maybe it’s time you changed your mobile phone? Why not RECYCLE your old mobile phone to help raise funds? It really couldn’t be simpler and on average each mobile phone is worth around £5 in cash donation to the charity!

Why we should recycle? 

Donating your old mobile phone not only helps us to help the environment, by disposing of your mobile phone via an accredited recycling company, but it will also help us to raise necessary funds for the charity as well. We believe that an unwanted mobile phone should never end up in landfill, where it can be potentially damaging to the environment.

The recycling company buy the mobile phones from us and either dispose of the phone in an environmentally friendly way or recondition them and resell them on.

How to donate your mobile phone to us:

By Post: Please place your old handset in a sealed padded/jiffy envelope and post to: The Karen Trust, Enterprise House, 5 Roundwood Lane. Harpenden. Herts. AL5 3BW. If you could place your name, address and contact details in with the handset.

By hand: Our reception will be more than happy to take collections of old mobile handsets between Monday – Friday 9 – 5pm. Address: The Karen Trust, Enterprise House, 5 Roundwood Lane. Harpenden. Herts. AL5 3BW.

Why not start a recycling collection at work, at school/college/university or within a group? We can arrange for collection of used handsets from your workplace, school/college/university or group. Email us to make arrangements – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call: 0844 247 3703

Very important: Before giving us your mobile handset, please remove and/or delete all personal data. This includes personal information: contacts, images, videos, music files, text messages and emails. Once you have sent your handset, we will NOT be able to return any handsets or your data. Any SIM cards, memory cards and personal data sent or handed in will be destroyed during the handling process and therefore cannot be returned.
