Recycle Mobile Phones for Cash

October 23rd, 2009 — 12:59am

Anyone with an old mobile phone handset, even if it is faulty can sell their old mobile phone for recycling. There are companies that will buy old handsets off anyone and either refurbish and reuse them or recycle them.

Many people who have a mobile may already have a spare or forgotten about handset just lying around in a drawer or at the back of a cupboard. Anyone on a contract will know that every 18 months or so the mobile provider will send an upgraded phone with all the latest features.

So what can be done with all these old phones?

Recycle them! Here are a few of the best mobile phone recycling websites that pay cash for almost any old or unused phone.

Envirofone – Pays up to £180. Payment of cash by cheque, Paypal or Argos Vouchers – Paid within 7 days.

Fonebank – Pays up to £220. Payment of cash by cheque. – Paid within 3 days.

Mopay – Pays up to £400. Payment of cash by cheque or vouchers. – Paid within 1.9 days.

Each website has an input box to enter the make/model number of the mobile(s) to recycle. Once the handset is found they will quote a price they will pay. Once a payment method has been chosen they will provide a freepost address which to send the mobile(s) to. Pop them into a padded envelope and send. Once they receive the phone(s) they will send payment often well within a week.

Happy recycling!
