20:20 is to launch its own handset recycling business for customers to earn cash for old devices.
The recycling programme, part of its Smart Planet services programme, will allow dealers to off er recycling services on their websites hosted by 20:20. Consumer and business customers can send in secondhand devices via 20:20.
The site will be managed by 20:20, with the value of each handset passed onto dealers in the form of shopping vouchers, cheques, or charity donations.
It is in talks with charities.
20:20 will either look to refurbish and re-sell handsets or parts into the UK and international markets.
