Donate mobiles, smartphones and IT equipment
We have partnered with a mobile & IT hardware recycling company which allows you to easily recycle your unwanted mobile phones and IT hardware.

All donated hardware is reused, refurbished or recycled in the correct environmental manner in line with the EU standards and all data is destroyed.
