Littlewoods teams up with MPX for mobile phone recycling
Popular shopping network Littlewoods has teamed up with MobilePhoneXchange (MPX) to provide an extensive network for mobile phone recycling across the UK.
[USPRwire, Wed May 28 2008] Littlewoods (http://www.littlewoods.com/) and Mobile Phone Exchange LTD (MPX) (http://www.mobilephonexchange.co.uk) are pleased to announce a new service providing Littlewoods’s customers with a used mobile phone trade in and recycle service.
The new Littlewoods service, which is being offered across all of the Littlewoods online stores, has already met with popular demand. The trade in scheme allows customers to recycle their old mobile phones and receive as much as £150. This compares more than favourably with the normal £10 flat rate schemes available today.
Customers are quoted an individual value for each old mobile they wish to recycle, given a free postage paid bag, and receive their money in as little as 7 days.
Littlewoods, who are one of the largest retailers of mobile phones in the UK today, are always delivering their customers the constant technological advances in new handsets and a full value trade in scheme makes this upgrade path even more affordable.
In addition re-using old handsets expands the horizons of many people in the developing world, where there is strong demand for used mobile phones. This scheme makes mobile services more affordable to many more people around the world. In many cases, it helps people gain access to communications for the first time.
It’s also a very positive step forward to promoting a responsible attitude towards the environment as the scheme is fully WEEE compliant.
MPX Managing Director Geoff Walters stated,
“We are delighted with our trade in partnership with Littlewoods. This innovative approach to re-using old handsets creates new value for both Littlewoods and their customers. It’s a real WIN WIN scenario”
