Trade-in your mobile

What to do with your old mobile? Trade it in for a new one. We recycle all the traded-in mobiles.

  • Trade-in your mobile online to get an online credit voucher.
  • Have you previously made a purchase from our online shop? You have the added option of being paid by cheque or via Paypal.
  • Trade-in your mobile at one of our participating stores to get an in-store credit voucher to the value of your mobile.

What happens to the recycled phones?

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.
