We now offer a recycling service for everyone, even if you’re not a Three customer.
If you have a few old gadgets like phones, MP3 players or Sat Navs you could make some money by using Three Recycle. Three Recycleis a scheme which enables anyone to recycle their old handset for cash. For every handset recycled, Three also makes a donation to our charity partner, Jigsaw.
Jigsaw is the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, committed to bringing about an Ireland where every young person’s mental health is valued and supported. Jigsaw is a primary care mental health service offering free, accessible, timely, impactful mental health supports for young people aged 12-25 with emerging mild to moderate mental health issues.
What is it?
If your gadget is in good working order it’ll be tidied up before being sold on at a reduced price.
The gadgets are mainly sold in developing countries.
Devices that can’t be repaired are sent to be "end of life" recycled. The precious metals and other components that can be reused are extracted and any remaining materials are smelted for energy recovery. Three is committed to complying with the WEEE directive. Where possible Three will ensure the reuse of old mobiles. If this isn’t possible, we’ll make sure they’re 100% recycled.
