ecoATM is a trusted leader in reducing electronic rubbish and finding value in gently used electronics.
ecoATM provides a convenient and responsible way for consumers to trade-in pre-owned smartphones for instant payment, with the assurance that the devices will be recycled or reused responsibly. The company was launched in the USA in 2009, and, since its inception in the US market, has diverted over 21 million devices form landfills. The US activity comprises of over 4,000 kiosks to date, across 50 States.
With around 125 million phones estimated to be languishing unused (four for every household) in the UK, ecoATM is a green, fiscally-friendly answer to the problem of unwanted smartphones and growing levels of electronic rubbish. By using one of ecoATM's 18 kiosks located around the UK, consumers can have their pre-owned handsets valued on the spot and can be offered a competitive price for instant sale. Once the handset has been traded-in, Gazelle will resell or recycle these devices.
We’re all about a rewarding experience. Responsibly recycling your phone with ecoATM not only puts extra funds in your pocket, but it also helps to ensure a cleaner environment for future generations. After you sell a mobile to ecoATM, we send it to a certified facility so it can be reused or responsibly recycled.
In the last decade alone, ecoATM has diverted over 19 million phones from landfills. Take a look at what this amount means to our planet.
The process only takes a few minutes of your time. When bringing your used phone to our machine, we take several safety precautions to ensure a smooth and protected transaction. We ask for a photo scan of your ID and a thumbprint scan. Using an ecoATM machine results in an overall healthier environment with minimized tech waste. When you’re helping to preserve the planet while earning extra funds for your old tech, everyone wins.
