Mobile phone recycling | Partnership with Sustainable Coastlines

Do you have an unused mobile phone?

South Wairarapa District Council has partnered with Sustainable Coastlines through their mobile recycling scheme. You can now drop off your old mobile phone to any of the South Wairarapa libraries or the Martinborough Council office, to give them a second life and to be recycled appropriately.

Sustainable Coastlines is an organisation with a profound mission: to ignite inspiration, knowledge, and empowerment in individuals, enabling them to become guardians of the pristine beauty that surrounds us.

Regardless of make, model, condition, or functionality, every single phone you donate will play a crucial role in shaping a brighter future for our environment.

Each phone is evaluated, data erased, and SIM/memory card safely destroyed. Phones that can still serve are refurbished, finding purpose as affordable handsets in regions like Africa and Asia. Phones beyond refurbishment are recycled, with 95% of their materials finding life in the creation of other products.

All funds generated assist with Sustainable Coastlines tireless efforts to preserve and restore our beaches and waterways.
