Not-for-profit mobile recycling company, MobileMuster, has partnered with the Salvation Army to raise funds for the not-for-profit’s Red Shield Appeal and encourage electronic waste (e-waste) recycling across the country.
As part of the joint venture, every kilogram of mobiles and accessories collected in store, MobileMuster will give $2 to the Red Shield Appeal.
MobileMuster recycling manager, Rose Read, said the company hopes the initiative will encourage the community to think twice about keeping their old unused phones and accessories at home.
“People will not only feel good by recycling their old mobiles and accessories, but now they can also help those who need it most through The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal programs,” she added.
Salvos Stores general manager, Neville Barrett, said, “we are very excited about this opportunity as it’s a great way to increase the range of goods we are able to recycle in our stores while also generating extra funds for The Red Shield Appeal programs.”
