Why recycle your phone?



With the Tbooth wireless Trade-In program, your old phone may be eligible for in-store credit, which can be put towards your new phone and accessories, saving you money!


When you bring in your old phone, it is diverted from landfills and either refurbished or recycled. This means you help reduce the amount of toxic heavy metals entering the groundwater, soil or ocean.


Don't spend hours trying to sell your old phone. The mobile experts at Tbooth wireless can help to find it a new home or recycle it. You may even be eligible to receive a credit towards a new phone. They can even setup your new device, install any accessories and assist in transferring data from your old phone.

Recycling your phone is easy!



Prepare your old phone for recycling by backing up the information, deleting all personal data and removing your SIM card.


Visit a Tbooth wireless store to drop-off your old phone. If eligible, you may receive a trade-in credit towards a new phone or accessory.


Your phone is sent to a recycling partner where it is assessed and either refurbished or dismantled for scrap, which is used to produce a variety of other items.
