Mobile Recycling Facts

  • Every year close to 20 million mobile phones are sold.
  • Fewer than 5% of the number of phones sold each year are recycled.
  • It is believed there may be in excess of 70 million unused mobile phones in the UK alone.
  • Even if the average value of the unused phones in the UK was 5 there would still be literally hundreds of millions of pounds worth of phones just sitting in homes up and down the country.
  • Recycling is important, some mobile phones contain toxic substances which can pollute the environment if dumped in landfilles. The battery from one mobile phone is enough to pollute 600,000 litres of water.
