Mobile Phones Mobilemuster logo

Don’t let mobiles go to landfill or waste away in your drawers. 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.  

Whatever you choose to do, remember to remove any data that you can want to keep – visit MobileMuster for tips on how to manage your data.

Why Recycle Mobiles?

Mobiles phones along with their accessories are not biodegradable, but they are highly recyclable.  On that basis they should not be disposed of in the bin as they contain harmful substances which, if not managed properly, could damage the environment.

Recycling 50,000 handsets can replace the need to mine 244 tonnes of precious metal ore. 

Before you recycle your mobile, make sure to transfer any data off the phone that you would like to keep like music, pictures or documents.  For more tips on managing your data visit MobileMuster.
