The old phones go to good use. They are often refurbished and resold, and even if they are actually obsolete (for example old-style analogue mobile phones), they can still be used in other parts of the world where the old style networks are still regarded as new. The old 900MHz analogue phones work in some parts of Africa where a hand-me-down phone network is welcomed! Plus, if you've got a phone that's even older than the developing world can use, I would guess the phone recyclers have a few museums who would be interested.

Anyway, this is altogether a good thing, because it means that old equipment is put back into use somewhere, or treasured for posterity. These things are not just scrapped for the gold. They are re-used, which is better than just the basic recycling.

It is impressive to see how many enterprises, big and small, are getting into the business of mobile phone recycling.
