Do a good thing with your unused mobile:

Recycle it for a tidy little reward.

It's easy to forget your old mobile when you get a new one. It's probably why so many of us have a drawer full of them. But with Virgin Media, it's really easy to turn those old mobiles into cash – and do something good for the environment while you're at it.

We call it Virgin Media Recycle – and it's available to anyone whether you're a customer or not.

Virgin Media Recycle makes recycling old mobiles easy. Just go to our website, enter your details and tell us about the condition of your mobile to get a competitive, fair price in no time.

We promise to pay exactly the amount we've quoted (just as long as the phone is the make and model you've registered online, and the condition of the phone is as you've described). This is unlike a lot of similar schemes that offer inflated prices and pay far less. And when your phone gets here, we'll break it down and recycle it, or refurbish it and pass it on for use elsewhere.
Better yet, we'll donate £1 to Scope for every phone we get with a recycle value. They'll use this money to improve their digital infrastructure and buy a range of digital devices, including tablets and smartphones, that can be used to support disabled people and their families.

We want to make it easy to get your phone to us. So if you're happy with our quote, we'll send you a Freepost bag. But if you aren't quite sure, no worries – your quote's valid for 7 days, so take time your time. When you've posted your phone, there's nothing else to worry about. When it arrives, we'll check its condition and wipe all your personal information off it – though it's up to you to remove the SIM card and/or memory card, and delete your data. Virgin Media isn’t liable for any personal information you leave on the mobile.

The money will be in your bank within 2 working days of us receiving your mobile at our recycling centre. And we'll keep you in the loop by sending you a text message when we receive your phone and another when your money is in your account. Alternatively you can choose to donate your cash reward to Scope.
