Recycle your old mobile and help Protect the Mountain Gorilla

Humane Society International will receive between $3 and $5 for phones sent to ARP using the free pre-paid satchel.
Help save the mountain gorilla
Coltan is a valuable mineral used in the manufacture of mobile phones. It is mined from the mountain gorilla's forest home, destroying their natural habitat and threatening these endangered animals. Recycle your old mobile phone today and help to take the pressure OFF increased mining.
Protect the environment
By recycling your old mobile phone you are helping to preserve the earth's resources and prevent potentially harmful substances from going into landfill.

Funds raised from recycling your mobile will be used to support patrols in Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the home of the critically endangered mountain gorilla. Many have been killed by poachers and HSI is committed to helping the surviving gorillas, whose population is declining.
Aussie Recycling Program (ARP) recycles thousands of mobile phones every year generating income for over 40 Australian charities. Refurbished phones are exported to developing countries, where low cost handsets are needed. The remainder are stripped of their components and recycled or reused in a variety of ways. No materials go to landfill.
