Stolen mobiles strategy agreed by phone recycling firms

Recycling your old handset is a great way to clear out your drawers full of old mobile phones which you've forgotten about when you got the latest handset and have some of the money back from it when you hand it in one of many recycling points.

However not everyone do it for good reasons... it has been estimated about 100,000 stolen handsets worth £4m are believed to be sold on each year. Because of this, the recycling firms decided to do something about this...

Recycling firms have agreed a code of practice to try to identify when stolen mobile phones are being offered for sale to them.

About 100,000 stolen handsets worth £4m are believed to be sold on each year.

As mobiles blocked from UK networks can still be used abroad, thieves sell stolen handsets to recycling firms which export many handsets.

Under the code, companies must check phones against a national database and report any stolen ones to police.

Recycling companies encourage people to send in their old, unwanted phones in exchange for money - on average about £40. The handsets are then resold elsewhere, often in developing countries.


It is good to see for them to do something about this and put a stop with the amount of mobile phones being stolen for profit to the criminals.

Do you think they have done enough? Should they do some more? If so, what?
