Mobile phone recycling really is spreading round the world with a radio station called ZIZ in St Kitts in the Caribbean announcing the launch of a new mobile phone recycling project.

The use of mobile phones is ever increasing and St Kitts is no exception.  Awareness of the possible environmental impact on the federation has led to the launch which is spearheaded by the rotary club of Liamigua and lime.

The Rotary club always attempts to undertake initiatives that enriches the lives of people, the health of the environment and address global issues.

This mobile phone recycling project fulfills all of the above objectives.  The proceeds from the project will be invested back into the local communities and most importantly it will help to protect the environment for generations to come.

Mr Alphonso Bridgewater, the General Manager for the Solid Waste Management,  is ecstatic about the project, saying it is timely as the landfill site has almost exhausted its capacity.

Members of the public looking to recycle their old mobiles need to know two things: Phones from all mobile providers are accepted and the batteries from the old phones must still be intact.
