Mobile phone recycler Regenersis has launched a new website running under its previous name fonebak to target the consumer market.
The website, www.fonebak.com, launched on October 5 and allows customers to recycle their old mobile and donate the cash amount to the BBC Children in Need charity.
Customers can choose how much they wish to donate to the charity and for those not wanting to donate any, Regenersis will offer 10p on their behalf.
Regenersis has worked with BBC Children in Need for five years and has collected over £1 million.
It said its prices are competitive and the website will provide full data clearance of handset information.
Regenersis and fonebak.com managing director Mark Franklin said: “Although we have raised over £1million for BBC Children in Need since 2005, we are hoping to increase that amount substantially by offering this new online solution.
“With so many online sites, we want consumers to have a safe and trusted place to sell their handset, with the opportunity to donate to one of the UK’s best-loved charities.”
Customers can view how much has been raised for the charity on the website. Fonebak.com invites fundraisers to collect a bulk of handsets and it will send a courier to collect them for free.
