If you have a phone, battery or accessories you want to get rid of, don’t throw them in the bin.
That’s especially true for older-style NiCad batteries, which shouldn’t end up in landfill as toxic cadmium can potentially leak into waterways and damage the environment.
None of the tested models has a NiCad battery.
However, all battery types and the phone’s circuit boards and plastic housing contain resources that can be recovered and reused.
There’s a free recycling scheme called mobile muster initiated by AMTA and Planet Ark.
You can return your old phone, battery and accessories to any retail outlet featuring this symbol.
