This December OzHarvest and Mobile Muster are launching our Mobile for a Meal campaign. For every mobile recycled this summer Mobile Muster will donate a meal through OzHarvest to Australians in need.*
Mobile Muster is aiming to recycle 70,000 mobile phones by the end of February so that OzHarvest can deliver 70,000 meals to people in need across the country!
To recycle your old mobile search for your nearest collection point here or drop off your old mobiles at any of the below retail stores.
Download the posters, social media image and video below to help promote the Mobile for a Meal campaign in your workplace. If you need any further information contact Mobile Muster.
