Where can you recycle old smartphones for cash?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello Everyone.

 

Is there anywhere in Bangkok where you can recycle old smartphones for cash?  I say recycle because these are the phones that I want to sell but I don't think anyone wants them because they are not Android or iPhone.

 

  • Microsoft Lumia 950XL -  Single SIM & factory unlocked + Continuum display dock and all chargers and cables.
  • Microsoft Lumia 640XL  -  Single SIM & factory unlocked and all chargers and cables.
  • HP Elite X3 (dual-SIM) - -  Dual SIM & factory unlocked with display dock and (I think) all chargers and cables.

 

Even better would be is there any place in MBK or anywhere like that where I can take these phones to (all working and in good condition - just no original boxes) to get cash for them?

 

Many thanks.

How much are you expecting per phone?

I gave my broken (graphic card not working) 5 year old dell laptop to the people that collect other garbage for recycling at my apartment.

She gave me 300 Baht for it.

Don't think there will be any buyers in MBK for Microsoft mobiles.Maybe some one here might give an offer.

IMHO it is a bit silly to give away a (old/broken) smartphone.

Most (old) smartphones have a very decent camera built in and with a free application (eg.: Alfred) they can be perfectly used as a dashcam or a security IP camera and save you lots of money.

"Alfred" exists also in a Windows version.

It would be great if there were ecoATM machines here.

 

At various times there are on-going recycling programs - with a lot of these focused on charities.

 

I think the post office drop option mentioned in post #2 ended 31 January. https://www.facebook.com/recycleandreduce

 

Chula has a few programs currently, including Chula Loves Earth. https://www.facebook.com/ChulaLovestheEarth/

 

I think you can also recycle electronics by looking for a red bin.

 

The PCD (Pollution Control Department) also has some programs. I can't find a lot of detail other than the PR.

 

Or you can sell used phones to a dealer for cash.
