Why should you recycle a damaged phone?

There's a number of reasons you should look at recycling your damaged or broken mobile phone. For every device that is thrown away, these end up in landfill and this is contributing towards an increase in carbon emissions. By selling your device to The Tech Octopus you're helping to reuse devices and reduce the environmental impact. Our aim is to recirculate as many devices as possible by refurbishing these back to a working standard. If we can't refurbish or re-use a device, we'll strip it down and use the parts on other devices or we'll recycle this responsibly.

What's more, we're going that extra step further by planting a tree for every device sold to us, so you're safe in the knowledge that we're doing what we can do offset the impact mobiles have on our planet.
