We're part of a government accredited scheme, RE:MOBILE, which accepts any make and model of mobile phone regardless of condition as well as accessories like batteries and chargers
What to do with your old mobile? Trade it in for a new one. We recycle all the traded-in mobiles.
Want to recycle your old mobile phone but don't know how? Just drop it off to any Vodafone store, or anywhere you see the RE:MOBILE logo, or post it to us and we’ll take care of it.
Vodafone Mobile Phone Recycling Appeal

We're part of RE:MOBILE, an industry-wide mobile phone recycling programme.
In 2014, RE:MOBILE was accredited by the Ministry for the Environment which means it had to meet high environmental standards.
Through RE:MOBILE, mobile phones that are in working order are refurbished and exported to places such as Hong Kong, China or Eastern Europe.
Mobiles that can’t be repaired are broken down, and the components are recycled with a better than 95% recovery rate.
A percentage of the profits generated by RE:MOBILE is donated to Sustainable Coastlines – a multi award winning New Zealand charity working hard to look after the waterways and coastlines we love.
