Phones for Homes

Recycle your phone to reduce homelessness and electronic waste

Mobile Monster is proud to partner with Head Start Homes to help reduce homelessness and electronic waste by recycling old phones and other devices.

Head Start Homes is a not for profit Community Services Organisation committed to their vision of a safe and stable home for every Australian family. They primarily help hard-working mums living in community housing purchase their own home without the need for a deposit and mortgage insurance. The newly vacated community housing home then becomes available for another family likely to be homeless.

Our sustainable solution also neutralises the damaging effects of electronic waste ending up in our environment because when you recycle your old device we find it a new home instead of ending up in landfill.

Our “Phones for Homes” initiative lets you recycle your old phone with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Head Start Homes so they can help more Australian families have a safe and stable home.

So why not recycle your own phone today and feel good knowing that you’re making a difference by reducing homelessness and electronic waste?
