O2 Recycle

O2 Recycle

Recycling your old phone is straightforward with O2, and you don't even have to be on our network.

Since launching O2 Recycle, we've paid out over £30 million, and 9 out of 10 customers would recommend our service to their friends.


With O2 Recycle, you can get up to £400 for your old phone, even if it's damaged. To find out how much your old phone is worth, click here.

If you see a higher price for your mobile on any of our competitor sites within 7 days of placing your order, we'll match it under our Top Price Guarantee.


We pay cash for your old phone directly into your bank account. We can also send you a cheque, or credit your phone bill if you're an O2 customer.

Or, you can donate the cash to Think Big, a campaign we're running with Bauer Media to support young people across the UK.

Protecting the environment

We have a zero landfill policy, so the vast majority of phones we receive will be reused, repaired or recycled for parts.
