Calling All Old Mobiles...
Due to the success of trials with MobileMuster in Sydney and Melbourne over the past 12 months all businesses across Australia can now recycle mobile phones, chargers and accessories in their ‘Cartridge 4 Planet Ark' collection box. To help you promote this new service to your colleagues we have developed a range of promotional resources that you can download.
To recycle your old mobile, it's battery, charger and other accessories all you need to do is drop them into your 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' box, making sure the battery is either still connected to the handset or if not the points are taped*. It's as simple as that!
When the collection box is full of cartridges and/or mobiles take the bag out, seal it with the cable ties provided and then return it through your usual method. Please ensure the weight of the bag still remains around 16kgs.
