Cells Phones Recycling


Cell phone recycling is a changeling program we developed and operate with great success. Usually cell phones usually they do not get recycle due to their size even though they are hazardous waste.

Just imagine hundreds of millions of used cell phones and accessories are taken out of service each year around the world as new innovations reach the marketplace. Where are these phones? Are they stored properly? Are they dangerous to our health?

Most people prefer to store them into forgotten drawers or just dump them in the household trash bin. Both ways they are very hazardous and need to be treated as such. Statistics shows that less than 7% of the cell phones are recycled. Where are the rest?


In Cyprus Telli and Cyta-Vodafone developed a program to that any citizen can recycle his/her old phone properly. We currently have more than hundred collection points in all Cytashops and affiliate resellers throughout Cyprus. We are in the process of developing similar partnerships in other territories which we operate. Part of our agreement is to donate 60% of the net revenues from the project to a nonprofit organization every year.
