Mobile phone recycling

    Hi Guys,

    I am doing a bit of a clearout in my small flat and I have a good few old phones and chargers, some broken, some still working.

    Is there anywhere you can drop them for recycling or send them to be recycled, ideally by freepost?

    In a previous thread, someone suggested sending to "Jack and Jill" but they seem to have stopped the recycling campaign back in September 2015.

    My phones are also too old to be taken by Three, as they only accepts recent models they can make some money from.

    I don't have a car so going to a recycling center is not either an option.

    Can you enquire at your local national or secondary school? The green schools committees are usually very active and do electrical recycling collections every year. Maybe they could take them from you?

    Thanks. I did not know about that. I will contact them and ask. :)
    In the meantime, if anybody has other options I'd like to get as many answers as possible as this could be a dead end.
