Nokia announces a global consumer survey that reveals that a majority of old mobile phones are lying in drawers at home and not being recycled.
Now with Apple launching the 3G iPhone, it is of course important to know where you can get rid of your Nokia 3G phone environmentally friendly.
Only 3% of people recycle their mobile phones despite the fact that most have old devices lying around at home that they no longer want.
Three out of every four people added that they don't even think about recycling their devices and nearly half were unaware that it is even possible to do so.
The survey is based on interviews with 6,500 people in 13 countries including Finland, Germany, Italy, Russia, Sweden, UK, United Arab Emirates, USA, Nigeria, India, China, Indonesia and Brazil.
In fact, up to 80% of any Nokia device is recyclable and precious materials within it can be reused to help make new products such as kitchen kettles, park benches, dental fillings or even saxophones and other metal musical instruments.
Nokia has collection points for unwanted mobile devices in 85 countries around the world, the largest voluntary scheme in the mobile industry. People can drop off their old devices at Nokia stores and almost 5,000 Nokia Care Centers.
