You can help reduce e-waste by recycling your old mobiles and accessories with MobileMuster.  Simply drop them off at over 3500 public drop off points including all major mobile phone retailers, including Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile, and Samsung stores.  Find your nearest drop point here.

Or post them in for free by picking up a reply paid satchel at participating AusPost stores, or download the free mailing label.

Mobile phones and accessories can’t be recycled in your general waste bins from council.  Although some councils offer collection points at local libraries and customer service centres, or even at waste transfer stations.  Check in with your local council.

If your mobile is still working then consider extending its life by either selling it online or passing it on to friends and family.  If not longer works and is no longer wanted then it is time to recycle it.
