Mobile phone recycling

UOW has a mobile phone recycling program with Mobile Muster.  All mobiles recycled via Mobile Muster are dismantled and recycled. No mobile phones are refurbished or reused as part of this program.   

What can be recycled via Mobile Muster?

  • mobile phone handsets
  • mobile phone batteries
  • phone chargers and cables

Ensure you remove the sim card and delete personal information from your phone. For assistance with this refer to your phone manufacturer's website or their helpline.
