Mobile Phone Recycling

Wellington Shire Council has partnered with MobileMuster, the official product stewardship program of the telecommunications industry in Australia, to provide a free recycling service to its residents. MobileMuster accepts all brands of mobile phones, plus their batteries, chargers and accessories. Everything collected is recycled to the highest environmental standard for resource recovery with nothing being resold. We do encourage deleting or removing any data that you want to keep from your SIM card or mobile phone, although any data left on the device is destroyed in the recycling process.

To recycle your old phone simply drop it into any one of our Libraries, or in to the Sale Service Centre.
