Recycle Your Mobile And Help The Murray River

When your mobile phone dies, the only sensible thing to do is send it off for recycling. Right now, you've got an extra incentive to do that: the MobileMuster scheme is directing funds raised from recycling phones towards regenerating key areas across Australia.

For every kilogram of phones recycled by MobileMuster between May 1 and June 5, Landcare Australia will plant a tree at one of four key locations within Australia, all centred around the Murray River. The organisation is hoping to collect 30,000 old mobiles over that period.

Sending in a phone is a pain and cost-free exercise: you can pick up a free satchel at Australia Post stores, print your own post-paid label from the site, or drop a phone off at a local collection point.
