Locofone

ALGIM has reached a business arrangement with Fonebank, a world leader in the reuse & recycling of mobile phones and tablets.  Through ALGIM, Fonebank will purchase mobile devices from councils at an excellent rate, varying according to type, age and condition.

  • Reuse – devices are refurbished for sale in third world countries, providing affordable communication in areas where telecommunications are inefficient or non-existent.
  • Recycle – zero landfill pollution. Obsolete devices, or those beyond economic repair are recycled according to NZ recycling standards.
  • Recover – the residual value in your phone to be used to offset the cost of new equipment.

How to participate

All you need to do is fill out the registration form, which will provide us with information about who will be our main contact, how you want your payment made etc.

Then, when you have phones ready to be recycled, fill out the phone collection form.

For further information, see our FAQs or contact admin@algim.org.nz.
