Do you have any old phones or accessories lying around the house? Keep them out of landfill and drop them into your local Optus retail store for National Recycling Week!
Optus’ recycling effort has had the environmental benefit equivalent to planting 259 trees, something Optus Sport host Mel McLaughlin is proud to champion.
“There are more than 23 million unwanted mobile phones across Australia, which is the equivalent of 2,200 tonnes of metal, minerals, plastics and glass and 95 per cent can be recycled,” Ms McLaughlin said.
“I believe it is an easy contribution we can all make by simply taking our old phones and accessories into an Optus store, so they don’t end up as landfill.”
Optus hosts collection points for old mobile phones, battery or accessories (including battery chargers) in all retails stores and inserts reply paid recycling satchels into Optus pre-paid mobile bundles. The recycling service is free, allowing customers to post back their old mobiles for recycling.
