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.
