Mobile Muster

Mobile MusterMobileMuster is the official recycling program of the mobile phone industry.

Initiated voluntarily by the Australian mobile telecommunications industry in 1999, its overall aim is to prevent mobile phones ending up in landfill.

The program collects and recycles mobile phone handsets, batteries, chargers and accessories from a network of over 4,500 mobile phone retailers, local councils, government agencies and business drop off points across Australia.

The program is managed by the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA) on behalf of the following members who fund the program voluntarily:

Handset Manufacturers
Nokia, Motorola, Samsung Electronics, Sony Ericsson, HTC, LG Electronics, Huawei, ZTE.

Network Carriers
Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, 3 Mobile.

Service Providers
AAPT and Virgin Mobile

Force Technology

The recycling service is free to consumers, schools, businesses, local councils and government agencies.

To 30 June 2011, over 831 tonnes of mobile phone handsets, batteries and accessories had been collected or more than 5.86 million handsets and batteries.

So when it comes to old mobile phones, batteries and accessories our message is simple;

"Round 'em up and hand 'em in!"
