Last week we reported that mobile phone could be the toxic waste of tomorrow, but now comes news that some mobile companies are looking to do something about it. T-Mobile has launched a new initiate in the U.K. to get people to recycle their old phones.
Under this effort T-Mobile is asking Britons to send their own phones, whether they work or not, and possibly even get some cash for doing so. We’ll have to monitor this story, and it isn’t clear whether this includes old T-Mobile handsets or not. But with with more then 50 million handsets reportedly in the U.K. that are not being used this could be a major effort to keep them out of landfills.
