Recycle your old mobile phone at Eastgardens Library

Even for those of us who remember life without mobile phones it's hard to remember going back to a time without them! While the development of Smart Phones has changed the way we do business and made it easier to keep in touch with friends and loved ones the downside has been an excess of old mobile phones lying around the house.

That is why Council is partnering with Mobile Muster to offer a mobile phone recycling service. Drop by the Central Library at Eastgardens to drop off your own mobile phone and we promise the mobile phone will be properly recycled and won't end up in land fill. Mobile Muster is a not for profit organisation, for more information visit or visit the Library.
