With the amount of emissions required to produce a new smartphone, the last thing you want is for your old handset to end up in landfill.
Old smartphones, including broken ones, are full of valuable materials, including rare earth metals, that can be recycled and used in new phones.
Plus, if your phone is still in good working condition, it might be possible to refurbish the device, and give it to someone who needs it.
Recycle your smartphone, free of charge
To begin the process of recycling your phone, please fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch to arrange shipment to us. We will send you a prepaid postage label, or arrange to reimburse you the cost of mailing the device the device once it arrives with us.
We will handle the device depending on its condition when we receive it. Newer devices in working order will be supplied to one of our charity partners, or we may sell the device to help fund our mission to make smartphone shopping more sustainable. Broken devices will be forwarded on to one of our recycling partners.
We will not turn on the phone when we receive it, unless we need to test whether or not it is working. We highly recommend that you perform a factory reset of your smartphone prior to sending it to us, for security reasons.
