A study by Dell has suggested that UK consumers are the worst recyclers of electrical equipment in Europe. Less than half are thought to regularly recycle, compared with 80% of Germans.

Meanwhile, Hitwise has claimed that Internet searches for mobile phone recycling has increased hugely in the last 12 months. For more information regarding mobile phone recycling please try the link to the Which? Website.
