Why Should You Recycle Your Mobile Phone?
RueZone understands that re-use is the best form of recycling
The UK has one of the worst records on electronic waste in the world. In 2016, every person in the UK generated a whopping 25kg of electronic waste – this includes items like laptops, tablets, computers and mobile phones that are just dumped in landfills or forgotten about at the back of cupboards or drawers.
In fact, it’s estimated that on average, a household contains four mobile devices that are just lying around, forgotten and unused. This is bad, because that unloved old phone could be given to someone else to use at an affordable price, either here in the UK, or in a developing country.
Our mission is to promote the idea that re-use is the best form of recycling.
We believe the more second-hand devices in use the better. It means that the big manufacturers like Apple, Samsung and Huawei don’t need to produce quite so many new mobiles to meet demand, preventing the damage that mobile phone manufacturing and supply does to the environment.
Luckily, people are starting to realise the importance of electronic device recycling and how it can help the planet and protect the environment.
Bringing unwanted mobiles back to life
An old mobile phone that may be junk to you could be just what someone else is looking for! An increasing number of people are selling, trading in or donating their phones to recyclers just like us so we can give them a brand new lease of life. At Ruezone we ensure that unwanted mobile phones are recycled in the most environmentally friendly way possible. We use sustainable recycling practices to extend the life of old phones, so someone else can get an affordable device that they’ll love.
So don’t just ditch your device, sell it to us and our team of engineers will give it new life as a professionally refurbished smartphone. Not only will you make yourself a bit of cash, but you’ll get a warm, fuzzy feeling inside knowing that your unwanted phone is making someone else happy!
What you'll get when you buy RueZone refurbished
All the phones we carry are pre-owned, but our team of expert engineers know just how to fix a phone to make it good as new! Every phone we source is fully tested, repaired and had parts replaced where necessary. We carry different grades of phones, from those with light scratches to their casing to phones that look like they’re brand new but regardless of the phone you opt for, we guarantee that it’ll be fully working and functional. We’re so sure of this, we offer free warranties of up to a year!
So when you buy RueZone refurbished, the only real difference from buying a brand new phone is it won’t come in the original packaging. But for that, you’ll get a phone that’s up to 50% cheaper than its recommended retail price! Buy refurbished, ditch the box and save yourself a fortune!
