Compare and Recycle was launched in 2010, and since our inception we have made it our mission to help our customers to make the most for their phones. We are now the UK’s largest independent mobile phone recycling comparison, and our award-winning site has helped over a million customers get in excess of a hundred million pounds for their old phones.
We make the process of recycling your old phones easier than ever before, as we enable you to compare a vast array of different recycling companies on the market both in the UK and abroad. You can compare devices by price and customer ratings, so you can be sure that you will get the best price and a great service.
We pride ourselves on delivering an excellent experience to our customers. Many people who have been using our service have been leaving us positive reviews on Trustpilot and feedback on our site to tell us how quick and easy they found it and how our service surpassed their expectations.

At the core of our site is our mobile phone recycling comparison tool. This service provides a comprehensive and trustworthy list of different recycling companies so that you can make an informed decision about where to recycle your phone.
We provide a list of refurbished devices available to buy so that you can find the best deal available on the market. We recommend buying refurbished handsets as this is a great way to reduce the environmental impact of the smartphone industry. Getting a refurbished device reduces the demand for a new smartphone to be manufactured, which has the harmful effects of creating more CO2 emissions and perfectly functioning smartphones getting left to become hazardous e-waste.
If getting a refurbished device isn’t for you, then we have a variety of phone contracts on offer from different retailers. We provide a mobile phone contract comparison so that you can see what the best deals on the market are for your phone of choice. We offer everything from Apple and Samsung to Huawei and Sony.
Recycling old electronics not only has a benefit for your wallet, but it also benefits the environment. When electronic devices are responsibly recycled, this prevents them from getting left to become e-waste on landfill sites around the world.
E-waste contains hazardous materials which can contaminate air, water and soil. This is highly detrimental to both organisms living in those habitats and the human populations that are in close proximity to these sites. As well as the issue of e-waste, there is also the enormous problem of CO2 emissions. Every year, an increasing number of smartphones are created to meet the frenetic demand. Do your part for the environment and recycle your phone.
