Recycling Policy

We aim to reuse 95% of the mobile phones we buy and we work with Zero Waste NZ to recycle the remaining 5%.

Zero Waste NZ employs the best recycling practice currently available. Devices are exported to Japan where they are re-refined to extract precious materials for reuse in the next generation of mobile devices.
