Can I recycle my old phone, tablet or accessory?

We are able to take any of your old or unwanted phones, tablets or accessories to safely and securely recycle or dispose of them.

Damaged batteries cannot be transported and should be safely disposed of in your local area.

Sending your device to us for recycling is completely free. Devices are recycled or disposed of safely and securely.

Should I remove the data from my phone, tablet or accessory when recycling it?

It is always advised to remove user data from the device before sending it in for repair or recycling. Whilst we take every precaution to securely erase your data, we cannot be responsible for any loss or unauthorised access to the data on the phones, tablets or accessories.

Can I get my phone, tablet or accessory back if I change my mind?

Unfortunately, once we receive devices, they are processed through our facility for recycling and cannot be returned.

I want to send my device for recycling. How should I prepare my phone, tablet or accessory for shipping?

After requesting disposal of your device using the form, you will receive an email confirmation and instructions on how to prepare your device for safe transportation. It is important to follow these carefully and to print and attach the provided AWB (air waybill) to the packaging.
