Telephone Disposal - What does it involve?

How to dispose of old phones and technology
Telephone Recycling and Disposal for Business.
Your phone system is important to you, handling the majority of communications throughout your company. When the time comes to upgrade (and lifetimes for new telecommunications technology get shorter by the year), you will be left with the old handsets, headsets and curly cords cluttering up your office.

Eventually all old phone systems will end up at the end of life pile that gathers dust and poses a growing risk either as an obstruction hazard or fire hazard. Around this time its important for someone to take responsibility and make a call to a professional I.T. and Telecoms Waste Disposal and Recycling Centre.

Systems Recycling can collect your old phone system for free and in many cases we can offer you residual value on the handsets, headsets and system cards that are still within the lifespan offered out by the manufacturer.
Some desk phones will be worth more than others, partly due to condition but also due to additional features, upgrades, quality of plastics and colour of device. What we do find with System phones is that a large proportion are deemed as faulty and beyond monetary value so we work on the basis that 10 to 20 percent of telephones are faulty on collection. Of course you are welcome to test and guarantee the phones are operating correctly and this will increase the value.
Where old phones are no longer of any use, we are happy to collect for free and dispose of ethically. This saves you the headache of recycling yourself.
Interestingly, over the past 10 years the increase in business looking to dispose of old mobile phone technology has increased. We are also able to accommodate the recycling of old mobile phones but the majority of the time we will not offer you any monetary value as the lifespan of the mobile phones are barely 2 years under business contracts.
We play to our strengths here at Systems Recycling so give us a call today or visit our website.
