Spotted an advert on TV a few weeks ago about recycling your old mobile phones. Finally got round to rummaging through the junk drawer in the kitchen, only to find 6 old phones there.

The company arranged to collect them free by courier(not sure if I can name them so haven't but just do a search) and I now have a few pence short of 100 cheque on its way to me. Going to pay it straight off the holiday balance.

As well as making money, it's a great way to recycle as you shouldn't throw them in the bin - they are reused.

Just thought may be of interest to someone in the current economic climate :)
