Fareham technology trade-in specialist WeBuyAnyPhone has clocked up a million devices bought, refreshed and recycled, in the six years since its launch in 2015. WeBuyAnyPhone specialises in mobile phone trade-ins from all manufacturers, and also accepts tablets and wearables.

The company has also launched WeBuyAnyPhone for business, designed for ease of use by organisations who want to trade in five or more devices.

“Every single device that comes to us is refreshed to the highest standards and given a new lease of life with a user in the secondary market. That’s a million devices that would otherwise have been left in a drawer or disposed of, and I am pleased that we are having a hugely positive impact on the environment as a result", says Alex Berthonneau, CEO at WeBuyAnyPhone (pictured).

Customers have a range of options to mail out their device or arrange collection, including a Freepost pack that can be taken to a Post Office, QR code label printing, or Covid-secure collection from home DPD, UPS or even Royal Mail postal workers.

There are an estimated 40million forgotten electronic devices in the UK, with companies such as WeBuyAnyPhone, musicMagpie and O2 Recycle dominating the market for trade-in and recycling.
