Why should I recycle my broken phone?



Its everyone’s responsibility to keep the environment clean.

What happens after I recycle my broken mobile phone?



There are three different possibilities which depend on the age and condition of your mobile phone. If the broken mobile phone you have sent is not BER (beyond economical repair) and can be fixed and resold, there are chances that the mobile phone will be fixed and resold again. This is the most common way of recycling old mobile phones. It not only yields best possible price for your broken smartphone but also decreases demand of one new mobile phone. That’s why it’s always recommended to sell your mobile phone as soon as you no longer need it even if its broken. If the mobile phone is BER then your broken mobile phone might be used for parts harvesting. Parts harvesting means that these mobile phones are used for parts as despite them being broken and faulty some parts might be useful to fix other broken mobile phones. If the mobile phone is old and can’t be revived economically and the parts can’t be used either, the mobile phone is stripped into small parts so that different metals and plastic can be separated and can be reused in manufacturing of other devices.
