Our Aim is
We, Mobile4Charity, are one of the emerging charities in Brisbane helping raise funds for people in need by repairing and recycling mobile phones. Since our company’s incorporation, we have repurposed thousands of mobile phones that were donated to us by people across Australia. We receive phone via mails or collect them ourselves to repair and sell at reasonable prices. The money generated by these phones is used for the betterment of people.
We are driven by the goal to help communities and mother earth by recycling one mobile at a time.
Our aim is to recycle mobiles not only in Brisbane but from other parts of the country as well.
Often people change their mobile phones as frequently as a few months but these devices are made to last for many years. Therefore, recycling them is essential because we cannot keep getting new phones and keep discarding the old ones without any responsibility.
Mobile phones are made with plastic which is a material that can harm the environment of it is not used correctly. By reusing mobile phones, we reduce the waste produced by phones and make our planet a safer place to live.
People don’t know this but most smart phones contain precious metals that can be recycled to save energy and resources that are required to be mined or manufactured. The metals include gold, copper, coltan, zinc, beryllium, and many others.
E-waste is a problem that affects every country in the world because the garbage produced by developed countries is often sent to developing countries for breakdown and processing. Thus, it is crucial; we all contribute to providing less waste.
Recycling smart phones is necessary for reducing the worldwide impact it is having. Manufacturers are devising ways to minimise e-waste but in the meanwhile most counties are struggling to curtail mobile phone garbage.
Thousands of people in Brisbane don’t have access to healthy food and many rely on junk to satiate their hunger. It is not nutritious which is why when you donate mobile phones, we resell them to generate funds to buy good food and drinks.
With the funds we raise by selling repaired mobile phones for charity, our organisation provides safe and clean drinking water to communities in remote areas. Although in the city getting clean water is not a major requirement, but in several rural areas it is a problem.
Often poor and disabled people are unable to get the medical help because they lack funds. Additionally, they are unable to buy medicines or get supplies for treatment. Therefore, we help them get the require assistance.
MobileMuster is a national mobile recycling program managed by the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association. Recycling mobile phones is crucial for Australia and the country’s residents are among the top users of technology in the world. Every year, Australians produce over 25kg of electronic waste which is a lot. The prime aim of this program is to prevent mobile phones from getting sent to landfills and recycle them in the safest, securest, and most ethical way.
Here are the commitments made by the association.
Increasing the efficient use of resources
Making sure the collected phones are recycled by the highest standards
Decreasing e-waste throughout the product life cycles
Proper management of manufacturing resources and disposal
I have donated more than 5 mobile phones to Mobile2Charity because it makes me happy that I can keep using new technology without worrying about electronic waste. I am glad I found this excellent charity.
I am a volunteer at Mobile2Charity and I collect mobile phones from homes of people who want to donate them but cannot mail or drop them. I love working with the charity because they help so many people in need.
I was an avid phone user who had to get the latest iPhones every year. I understood the importance of reducing electronic waste which is why I collaborated with this organisation to recycle my old phones and use them for the good of society!
Mobile2Charity is one of the best organisations in Brisbane and they help thousands of people in need by raising funds ethically and safely. I have been associated with them for two years and I am glad I became a part of their team!
