Clearing out your cupboards? Don’t throw your unloved items away! Your old mobile phone, unwanted jewellery and even your old car can change lives, if you recycle them with WaterAid.

Donate your mobile

Love your new phone, but not sure what to do with your old one? Recycle it for WaterAid and we’ll use the money to transform lives with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. You could even arrange a collection at your workplace or school. And with every phone raising an average of £5, you’ll soon be making a big difference.
