Thread: Where to throw away unwanted phones?

  1. #1

    Default Where to throw away unwanted phones?

    Have two no longer functioning phone? Wonder where to throw them away so they could be recycled. There used to be a 'recycle bin' in nokia sc, but are no longer there. Anyone?

    as in totally dead?

    who knows those who fix phones can at the very least extract some spare parts from them.

    the big big recyclers will know what to do with the phones too - though don't know how to get the spoilt phones to them.

    nokia didn't take recycled phones for quite a while already?

    Nokina SG partnered my school (SAJC) and did some eco projects like installing solar panels etc, and just a month ago my school still had a bin up for unwanted phones. If you really want to dispose it of that way, I can try asking a few of my teachers (:
