Outside of the above options, if you have mobile phones, tablets or wearables that perhaps no longer works or are faulty, then you can of course use O2 Recycle to send your device to us for it to be safely and responsibly recycled.
What about O2's normal waste?
We posted about this last year if you'd like to read more, but the short version is that our dry recycling (plastic bottles and cans for example) is processed into bales that then get turned into useful items like garden furniture and fleece clothing. The leftover residual waste is then eventually turned into aggregate for the construction industry.
I threw some old blinds that I swapped with next doors into the back of the housing trust's rubbish wagon.
I trust they will be properley recycled....
With charity shops being closed during lockdown, we have quite a lot of stuff to recycle when they re-open!
We donated a fully working/data wiped laptop and tablet to 2 local schools.
Donated a working TV to my eldest son
Used the local council for advice about recycling unwanted electrical items
Our local tip has a shop which takes a variety of clothes/equipment.
Garden waste has a 2 weekly collection here.
Two mobiles donated to my son for him and his partner.
