Why you should recycle your old phone this Christmas.
How many unused phones are lying around your house right now? Well phone hoarding has been described as being a habit just as bad as using single use plastic bags. According to Australia’s government-accredited mobile phone recycling program, Mobile Muster, just 10 percent of Australians actually recycle their old mobile phones, with an estimated 23 million unused mobile phones collecting dust in cupboards around the country. Coming up to Christmas, this is important to keep in mind if you’re hoping for a new mobile device this year.
We were joined on the Wednesday Daily by Spyro Kalos, the manager of Mobile Muster, to talk about the importance of recycling old phones.
