Mobile Phone Recycling & Destruction Services

Despite being small enough to fit in your back pocket, mobile phones contain a wealth of sensitive data. To protect your privacy, Shred-X’s mobile phone recycling service offers a convenient and secure disposal solution.

Our recycling and destruction systems are foolproof – no matter what model phone you need to dispose of, Shred-X can keep it from falling into the wrong hands.

Why Destroy Mobile Phones?

Destroying your old mobile phone can help strengthen your data protection policy. To eliminate any risk to your privacy, Shred-X has sufficient resources to take care of the entire disposal process for you. Our advanced destruction techniques are efficient and thorough – we use equipment designed especially to dismantle mobile phones, ensuring their complete destruction.

How We Destroy Mobile Phones

Shred-X’s mobile phone destruction service involves the physical destruction of the device. After the destruction process is complete, your mobile phone can then be recycled, completing the secure disposal process.

Mobile Phone Recycling

In Australia, the average consumer upgrades their phone every 18 months. Even though up to 90% of the materials found in phones can be repurposed, only a small fraction of the phones we routinely discard ever get recycled.

When dumped in landfill, mobile phones can become toxic. They often contain materials like mercury and lead. If not handled correctly, these substances can seep into the soil, causing long-term environmental damage.

Apart from protecting your privacy, partnering with a certified secure destruction company which ensures the destruction of all data on your mobile phone can help minimise e-waste. If you’re not sure why anyone would want to repurpose your old mobile, these are just some of the materials that can be harvested from phones:

  • Platinum
  • Copper
  • Silver
  • Iron
  • Nickel
  • Zinc.
