We're cutting electronic waste and helping you do the same

Extending the life of tech

There are more mobile phones than people in the UK and we use tech like WiFi routers and chargers every day. There are ways to make your electronic equipment last longer, or if a device is truly at the end of its life, you can recycle it.

What can you do?


All our Pay monthly phones come with the UK's only Lifetime Service Promise, which includes Battery Refresh and Lifetime Warranty at no extra cost, meaning your phone lasts longer.

Joining forces with WWF

We’ve partnered with WWF to help reduce electronic waste and promote a more circular economy for mobile devices.

Our campaign, ‘one million phones for the planet’, encourages people and businesses across the UK to hand in their old phones and tablets to be traded in or donated to social causes. For every device handed in, we’ll donate £1 to WWF conservation projects across the world.

What can businesses do?

We help businesses work towards a circular economy by offering Device lifecycle management (DLM)

We lease smartphones and tablets to businesses for their employees to use, then take the devices back at the end of the contract to be refurbished, reused or recycled.

Managing waste across our business and network

Our goal is to reuse, resell or recycle 100% of our network waste. To help us reach this goal, we launched Asset Marketplace, a business-to-business solution that allows us to resell and repurpose large decommissioned electrical items, like masts and antennae.
