Sending your gadget to the recycling company is very straightforward.
Most of the companies in our database offer a free postage service. You can check if the company you’re selling to offers free postage before choosing their offer.
Alternatively you may decide to send in your device yourself e.g. via Royal Mail Special Delivery or a courier service. We highly recommend this, especially when you are about to send a high value product or multiple devices in a single postage pack.
Do not send more than two devices in a single postage pack.
Preparing your device to send
Before packing the device, we recommend that you:
Charge the batteries
Perform a factory reset on your device and ensure that there is no personal data left on it
Do not include any SIM cards, SD cards or any other accessory containing your personal data
If you are sending a phone, whether iPhone or Android, ensure that you are sending both the phone AND its battery.
You do not need to send accessories or chargers.
Packaging your device
Make sure that your device is well protected and does not move in the postage pack, for example by using rigid cardboard packaging or bubble wrap to cushion your device. This will ensure that it does not get damaged during transit.
Double check everything before you seal the package and send it off.
After receiving your device, the buyer will send you an email confirming receipt.
