Cell Phone Trade-ins: Numerous Advantages
Did you know that you can help in protecting the environment by trading-in your old mobile phone for cash? As an additional benefit, you also earn some cash for doing so. Sadly, every year, many people still toss away their old phones which have the potential of being recycled. Our landfills are full of electronics posing extreme danger to our environment as such things do not decompose.
How Cash Helps
Though it is not a big deal earning some extra money by recycling an old phone or electronic device, but considering the amount of investment you have made into the phone initially, why not? Getting a part back of the amount paid, say around £150 or £200 for your phone can prove to be helpful. This can be used towards anything – either paying for a utility or towards purchase of a new mobile phone. Even though the amount may not be huge, but haven’t we heard of a penny saved is a penny earned.
Minimising Harmful Impact on Environment
The touchscreens in most of the mobile phones available nowadays contains mercury and other toxins which have a detrimental effect on our environment. Even the cover cases made of metal or plastic do not decompose. Not only are the recycling programmes fulfilling a very critical need of saving the environment but are also helping individuals realize the importance of upgrading their old phones each time they turn in their old mobile or other electronics for recycling.
