Recent consumer survey of Nokia shows that only 3% of people recycle their old mobile phones. Very few are being thrown away instead the majority are simply kept at home and never used.
Nokia claims that 80% of any Nokia device is recyclable and precious materials within it can be reused to help make new products such as kitchen kettles, park benches, dental fillings or even saxophones and other metal musical instruments. Plastic that canâ€™t be recycled are burnt to provide energy for the recycling process, and other materials are ground up into chips and used as construction materials or for building roads.
The survey revealed that one of the main reasons why so few people recycle their mobile phones is because they simply don’t know that it is possible to do so.
