Consumers Put Unwanted Goods to Good Use with Re-launched Recycle.co.uk Service

May 15, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
May 15, 2010 Leading consumer goods exchange and recycling portal Recycle.co.uk has introduced a new and improved website to offer consumers a more productive and enhanced portal for exchanging and recycling unwanted consumer items. The online service can help people to promote unwanted items to people who may find a use for them and also allows people to swap discarded mobile phones for money.

Users of the Recycle.co.uk service can visit the site and register to recycle all manner of differing consumer goods and items which they feel they no longer need, from stereo equipment through to dishwashers and fridges. The website has a mission to reduce landfill usage in the UK and to put still-working items to good use in new homes.

UK consumers can advertise their unwanted consumer goods on the site for free, making it the ideal place to go for recycling goods which are not yet past their sell-by date and which still operate adequately. The re-launched site allows advertisers to include a contact phone number in their ads while people looking for particular items can register for email alerts to tell them when a fridge, for example, has been added to the site's listings.

The revamped offering also includes more comprehensive search functions like the ability to search for goods in your nearby area by post code. The website also now offers a mobile phone recycling service where people can sell old and unwanted handsets for cash.

Gareth Robinson, spokesperson for Recycle.co.uk, said, "We've been really pleased with the response to our service in the first year and as such we wanted to give people even more reasons to visit our site. The post code search makes it more convenient than ever and the mobile phone scheme is a great way to raise some extra pocket money."
