Why recycle your phone?

Recycling your unwanted phones through us is not only great for the environment, but is also very convenient as we take any phone, in any condition – even non-working and damaged handsets.

No hidden charges

If you send us your phone and we believe it isn’t worth what you expected, we’ll return your phone for free.

Recycle your phone online or in-store

Sell your phone to us online and we’ll send you a free postage pack. Or you can trade in your phone at any Carphone Warehouse store for instant payment.

Environmentally friendly recycling

We buy thousands of phones every month and we’re committed to ensuring 100% of these are recycled in an environmentally friendly fashion.

   Please note. Most payments are processed on the same day that we receive your phone. If you have chosen to be paid by bank transfer you will receive this in 3-5 working days.
