Mobile Phone Recycling

posted: Thu, November 21, 2019

If you have any unwanted phones in your family or whanau, please bring them to school and drop them in the collection box in the office for recycling before the end of the term.

Swapkit who have been running this initiative, will donate the proceeds of the sale of old phones to NZ charity Sustainable Coastlines.

It is estimated that each year up to three million phones become obsolete in NZ, of those only 2% are recycled.

Phones collected keep our landfills free of those mobile phones and their array of hazardous toxic substances while also helping our School gain valuable rewards.
