A scheme to recycle old and broken mobile phones to raise funds for the St. John's Ambulance Brigade, is being launched on today .

The mobile telephone recycling scheme is being launched by Joan Girling, member of Suffolk County Council's executive committee, at the Foxhall Household Waste and Recycling Centre near Ipswich.

The county council is teaming up with the Mobile Phone Recycling Company to recycle both phones and chargers. Each phone and charger donated will raise between £2 and £12 for the St. John's Ambulance Brigade for their work in Suffolk.

The mobile phone fundraising scheme is being promoted nationally by the St. John's Ambulance Brigade.

Suffolk County Council has a commitment to reduce the amount of household waste going to landfill and increase the amount of recycling. This campaign helps towards recycling targets and benefits a worthwhile cause at the same time.

People can take their phones along to be recycled at any one of the Suffolk County Council's household waste and recycling centres.
