How to recycle a mobile phone for cash

In recent years, there has been a big rise in the number of companies that have appeared on the market offering cash for mobile phones. There are now many companies and places that are looking to buy used mobile phones. This article looks at a few of them.

Mizuma mobile

Mizuma mobile regularly run adverts on U.K television and are one of the most well-known and established companies in the field of buying used mobile phones. Mizuma has been running for a number of years now and, on average, they buy around 150,000 mobile phones a month. In order to sell your phone with Mizuma, you will have to register on the Mizuma website to receive a free postage bag. You then simply have to send your mobile back in the envelope provided, and a few days later, you will receive a cheque for your phone.

Envirofone

Envirofone works in a very similar way to Mizuma, the only difference being that they promote and pride themselves on buying old mobiles in order to help the environment. The company provides you with a free post-padded envelope once you have registered with the site. You simply send it to the company and they will post a cheque to you. You can cheque how much your mobile is worth on their online browser section. Envirofone often reuse the mobiles that they buy for those in developing countries, or they simply recycle them and break them down in parts in order to help the environment.

eBay

Bidding website The bidding site eBay is always a good site for selling unwanted items and it is no different when it comes to selling mobiles for cash. Ebay is a bidding website which means that once you have put your item up for sale, users of eBay may bid on your item within a set time period. The user who has bid the most amount of money within the time period, gets the phone and it is up to you to deliver it to them. This can be better than selling to companies, as there is no set price on your phone. Thus, you could get a lot more cash for it from an eBay customer than you would from a mobile phone company.
