Mobile phones are an intrinsic part of our lives and culture.The popularity of mobile communications has rocketed and the mobile phone has become one of life’s essential products.To keep apace with this growing demand manufacturers have invested millions of pounds in developing the newest technologies and gadgets to keep us interested.Mobile phones are not a simple commodity to us.They are a status symbol,a gateway to our online social networks and a reflection of who we are.
As one mobile phone trumpets its way majestically onto the mobile communications market another is cast disdainfully aside by its previously doting owner.So what becomes of these sad and worn out relics? Most will be shoved to the back of a drawer but some will end up in the waste disposal system. Both options can be avoided by choosing mobile phone recycling. These small electronic devices harbour a lot of dangerous chemicals and substances, and need to be disposed of professionally. Some of the substances that can be found in a mobile phone are lead, cadmium, beryllium and flame retardants – all of which are extremely harmful to the environment.
Recycling mobile phones is an important process that prevents the environment, land and indeed ourselves from being adversely affected by the damaging effects of these phones.There are a variety of ways you can recycle a handset. You may choose to donate it to a charity who will distribute the phone to people who are needful. Others choose to return it to the network provider but by far the most popular choice is to sell mobile phones for cash to a mobile phone recycling company. Most companies will ask for the phone and its battery and in return will send you the relevant cash.At Mazuma Mobile we offer a mobile phone recycling service to dispose of your old mobile phones for cash.
