Donate your old mobile phones & help protect out the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife.
The Foundation's mobile phone recycling program is called Phones for Flora, and it is run in partnership with the Aussie Recycling Program (ARP).
Flora is a kangaroo, and by recycling your mobile phones you can help out Australian wildlife just like Flora.
Did you know that Australians buy new mobile phones at the rate of 3-4 million phones per year? There is an estimated 10-18 million unused phones lying around in home cupboards and office desks that sadly are destined to become landfill.
The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife and the Aussie Recycling Program have partnered up to help stop millions of unwanted mobile phones (with their highly toxic metals) from going to landfill and polluting our environment.
By donating your old mobile phone you will be helping to save the environment.
The Aussie Recycling Program is giving the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife between $3-$5 for mobile phones you donate.
Donating your old phones (and those of your friends) is dead easy.
Donating your old phone:
Please fill in a Donation Form to accompany any phones you send. Click here to download a donation form. Remember to put 'Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife' in the Donation Instructions box so that Aussie Recycling Program knows you want the Foundation to benefit from your mobile phone donation.
You can drop off your unwanted phone at an ARP collection point in your state - click here to see the list.
Or purchase a padded jiffy bag and mail it to:
AUSSIE RECYCLING PROGRAM
LOCKED BAG 4000
MOORABBIN VIC 318
(Remember to include the Donation Form when mailing.)
You will need to separate the battery from the phone and wrap the battery in bubble wrap when mailing. Due to postal regulations, you can only mail one battery per jiffy bag.
You can also use our Reply Paid Label.
Donating 16 or more phones:
Get your friends, family, neighbours, school or workplace involved. If you collect 16 or more mobiles, the Aussie Recycling Program will provide a courier to pick them up from you for free.
You will need to fill in the following forms if you want to have a free courier pick up 16 or more phones from you.
1. Donation Form - Click to download and remember to put 'Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife' in the Donation Instructions box.
