How to recycle your phone

Thousands of unwanted phones are thrown away each year; but they don't need to end up in landfill sites. There is a choice and it's easy.

The borough council provides four locations for the recycling of small electrical items. The locations are:

  • Burbage: Millenium Hall on Britannia Road
  • Desford: Bosworth College, Leicester Lane (car park area near the swimming pool)
  • Hinckley : Asda, Barwell Lane
  • Hinckley: Tesco, Hawley Road

Look for the pink recycling banks in the car parks.

Alternatively, there are mobile phone collection points are also located at all 14 recycling and household waste sites managed by the Leicestershire County Council. It is important to donate the phone and charger together as many of the phones will be re-used. Just remove your SIM card before donating the phone.
