Mobile phones (smart phones)

Find out how to reduce, reuse and recycle mobile phones


Before thinking about reuse, recycling or disposal options for your mobile phone, have you considered whether it could be repaired?

There are several repair cafes and groups in Suffolk who offer free help to local communities. Please visit the repair cafes page to find out more.


If your phone is still working (and sometimes newer broken models) can be sold to companies that will refurbish it to sell on.

Alternatively, charity shops often have envelopes for you to send the phone off as a donation.


You can recycle older and broken phone models at any Suffolk Recycling Centre.
