Round Up Your Old Mobiles - It's Free and Easy
Author: Lucy Band
The 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' program and MobileMuster have teamed up to help you, your colleagues and your workplace recycle your printer cartridges and mobile phones in one easy step.
Due to the success of MobileMuster trials in Sydney and Melbourne, all businesses across Australia can now recycle their mobile phones, chargers and accessories by dropping them in their ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' collection box as per the instructions*. It's a simple as that!

How Does it Work?
When the collection box is full of cartridges and/or phones take the bag out, seal it with the cable ties provided and call the free courier service on 1800 24 24 73. A courier will be out to collect the full bag within 3-5 working days. Please ensure the weight of the bag still remains around 16kgs.

* For safety reasons please ensure your battery is either connected to its handset when you recycle it, or if you are just recycling the battery please tape over the contacts so they can't come in contact with anything else in the box
