Turn your old cell phone into cash
By 2005, 100 million mobiles weighing approximately 250,000 tons will be thrown out annually in Europe alone, Inquirer is quoting a researcher from GMI. And the volume of disposed mobile phones is growing faster than the volume of waste overall, according to recycling experts. Toxins associated with this waste include heavy metals and poisons such as arsenic, lead, and mercury.
UK-based Mopay now offers a quick service offering you to turn your old and redundant mobile phone into cash. All you have to do is to send them your used phone (freepost), and they'll send you the money in return. Before you can get a quote for your old phone online. For instance, my old Nokia 6210 is still £10.00 worth to them!
What's more, Mopay says it will donate 10% of the sale price to a children's charity. That is a smooth move!
