Recycle Your Old Mobile Phones!

16/02/2016
Mobile Phone Recycle Program
This term, we are participating in a mobile phone recycling program – a campaign run by Mobile Muster, in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute Australia (JGIA), to help raise money to conserve chimpanzee habitats in Africa.
 
The mobile phone reuse and recycling campaign is a great way for our school community to learn about the importance of reuse and recycling and how our actions can help conserve critical forest habitats in Africa where chimpanzees and other great apes live.
 
We are asking all staff, students, parents and the wider community to donate any old mobile phones and accessories.  The program accepts all brands of mobile phones and their batteries, chargers, accessories (cases, car kits, etc) and mobile wireless broadband services.  
 
So get out all of your old mobile phones today!  Students can donate phones via the collection box in the school library. 
 
Phones that are in working order will be resold by Bounce Mobile, the rest will be dismantled and the plastics and metals will be recycled by MobileMuster, the only not-for-profit Government accredited mobile phone recycling program in Australia.  Any data on the handsets will be removed before resale or destroyed in the recycling process. Funds raised from the resale of mobile phones by Bounce Mobile will be donated to the Jane Goodall Institute Australia (JGIA). MobileMuster will also give JGIA $2 per kg for recycled mobiles, batteries, chargers and accessories.
 
At the end of the campaign (end of term one) the school will receive a JGIA Certificate which will include the total funds raised, the number of old mobiles phones resold and the total weight of mobiles, batteries, chargers and accessories recycled.
