Mobile phone market to change with Olympics
It is estimated that about 50,000 mobile phones are lost or stolen in the London area, usually in a two-week period. Imagine how many of those phones might end up in waste bins. Worse yet, there is an estimate that about 70,000 mobile phones will be lost during the Olympics. The number of phones lost or stolen each year is so high that it is no wonder we want to get a little something back such as an insurance replacement of the phone and to recycle all of our old mobile phones.
Mobile phone recycling is one way you can make a little money. Any phones you have lying around your home can be recycled. You can also recycle electronic waste such as iPads and tablets if you have any unused. You do get more money from devices that still work, but all the same, if you can earn a little bit of money for the phones you still have, it is worth it. The key is to keep tabs on your mobile phone so you will not become a statistic.
Keep your mobile phone close to you at all times. Put it inside your purse or pocket that is buttoned. In this way, no one can steal it and you will not lose it. Excitement during the Games can lead to loss. Some may even try to recycle your phone if they find it. This is good news since companies do keep track of this information, meaning your phone could find its way back to you.
