Mobile Muster helps muster money for Salvos Red Shield Appeal

By

If you recycle your old mobile phone at a Salvos Store this year you’ll help raise funds for the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal.

Salvos Store have announced a new angle to its partnership with MobileMuster where for every kilogram of mobiles and accessories they collect in store, MobileMuster says it will give $2 to the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal.

MobileMuster boasts that it is ‘the only not for profit government accredited mobile phone recycling program in Australia and is committed to keeping old phones out of landfill and ensuring they are recycled to the highest environmental standards, securely, safely and ethically.’

Speaking about the new MobileMuster partnership, Salvos Stores General Manager Neville Barrett said “We are very excited about this opportunity as it’s a great way to increase the range of goods we are able to recycle in our stores while also generating extra funds for The Red Shield Appeal programs.

“By recycling their old mobiles and chargers, the community will be giving hope to those who need it most in their local area through our Red Shield Appeal Programs.”

Rose Read, Recycling Manager of MobileMuster, explained ‘how important this partnership with Salvos Stores is to ensuring old mobiles don’t end up in landfill or lying around at home going to waste.’

Read said: “With more than 22.5 million unused mobiles in people’s drawers and cupboards we hope this initiative will encourage the community to think twice about keeping their old unused phones and accessories at home.

“People will not only feel good by recycling their old mobiles and accessories, but now they can also help those who need it most through The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal programs.

“As an industry funded not for profit program, MobileMuster is very proud to be able to support The Salvation Army and the great work it does in the local community in supporting marginalised and disadvantaged people.”

MobileMuster says it ‘accepts all brands and models including their batteries and chargers,’ and promises that ‘nothing is resold, everything is recycled and all data is destroyed.’
