20:20 Mobile signs Qatar recycling deal
20:20 Mobile has signed a deal with Qatar’s mobile retailer, Starlink, to provide an in-store recycling service.
All of Starlink’s stores will offer the recycling service and 20:20 will process the handsets through its recycling facility, in line with EU legislation.
Starlink supply chain director Rob Kerry, who was business development manager at 20:20 until last May, said: ‘We want to be at the forefront of corporate environmental leadership in Qatar, and 20:20 Mobile’s knowledge and expertise in handset recycling will ensure we give customers a responsible and ethical way to trade-in their mobile phones, helping us to achieve this goal.’
20:20 Mobile MD James Browning said: ‘Starlink’s new mobile phone recycling programme is a “green” step forward for the company. The scheme is further evidence of how 20:20’s recycling service is helping retailers and network operators to add value to their customers’ propositions as well as acquire and retain clients.’
