Music Magpie begins recycling mobiles and tablets


Firm, which buys unwanted CDs, DVDs, and video games, adds mobile devices, laptops, iPods, e-readers and games consoles to products it will now buy

Music Magpie is now buying a number of technology products from consumers, including mobile phones and tablets, and offering cash for them as part of its recycling scheme.

The company, which pays out tens of millions of pounds each year to customers selling CDs, DVDs and video games, has expanded its offering to include mobile devices, laptops, iPods, e-readers and games consoles.

Customers must visit the Music Magpie website and enter the make or model of the product they wish to sell, where they will then be presented with an instant valuation.

If the consumer is selling more than 25 items or a technology product, the firm will organise to collect them using its free courier service.

Customers can choose to receive payment by bank transfer, cheque, turn their cash into e-vouchers or donate the money they make to one of Music Magpie’s charities, including Breast Cancer Care and the RSPCA.

Music Magpie chief commercial and marketing officer Eren Ozagir said: “We know more and more of our customers, who love using our service, want to make a little extra money and make some much needed space, by selling more of their stuff that’s just sitting around the house. From today, they can.”
