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. The company was launched in the USA in 2009 and is comprised of over 4,000 kiosks to date, across 48 States and the UK.
The goal is to not only provide a fast and secure selling process, but to also keep harmful and toxic materials out of the environment by finding new homes for these devices. With around 125 million phones estimated to be languishing unused (four for every household) in the UK, ecoATM is a fiscally-friendly answer to the problem of unwanted smartphones and growing levels of electronic rubbish.
ecoATM has diverted over 23 million devices globally from landfills over the past decade. To put that into context, this had the equivalent positive impact on the environment as removing over 2,500 cars from the road, or planting over four million trees.
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 23 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.
Partnered with our parent company ecoATM LLC in the United States, we’re on a mission that leads us all to a greener future. We’re here in Europe and America to change how the world thinks about pre-owned consumer technology and make a lasting, positive impact on the world we live in.
We are part of our family company, ecoATM International Limited. The ecoATM branded kiosks are operated in the UK and are partnered with our sister Gazelle website offered in the United States.
