Let's Mobilize!

Recycle old mobile phonesBring your old cellphone to Resene and help Sustainable Coastlines!


Q. Do we want CDMA phones?

A. Yes

Q. What happens to Sim cards and chargers?

A. We do not need these, but if some are collected they will be safely and securely destroyed by the recycling company.

Q. What happens to the mobile phones?

A. The phones are recorded, graded and stored before being shipped to countries such as Hong Kong, China or Eastern Europe where they are checked, reprogrammed, repackaged and sold. This has the added benefit of supporting emerging economies that are in desperate need of this technology.

Q. Who will benefit from the money raised?

A. The money raised will be donated by the RE:MOBILE programme to Sustainable Coastlines.

So bring in your old cellphone and help Sustainable Coastlines. Remember when you come in, also bring any unwanted old and foreign coins with you for the Heads Up for Kids campaign, which helps kiwi kids through Lions Clubs nationwide.

And bring in your old unwanted paints to the Resene PaintWise service.

In earlier years, the RE:MOBILE programme shared money raised between Scouting NZ and Starship.
