My mobile phone's never been the same since someone stood on it, oddly enough. I've been trying to work out how to recycle it and I just found the answer.
You just email Guide Dogs for the Blind, they send you a freepost envelope and after you've sent it back they get £3.50. Result!
(They also do inkjet cartridges and even humble postage stamps - although I'm not sure I'm quite that dedicated.)
