Put your old mobile to good use

London SE1 website team

If you've recently upgraded your mobile phone, there's a new local scheme that can put your old handset to good use, reconfiguring donated mobile phones into personal safety alarms for vulnerable people in the area.

This new project is being run in the Elephant Links SRB area (this covers most of Bankside and The Borough, as well as the Elephant itself) by Southwark Police, Victim Support Southwark and CRISP (Community Recycling in Southwark Project),

The Police and Victim Support Southwark refer potential beneficiaries of the donated phones to the scheme who then receive reconfigured mobile alarms for emergency situations.

To donate your old mobile phone and charger to the scheme:

• Drop them off at Walworth Road or Borough High Street Police Stations
• Send up to 3 phones per envelope (with chargers) by FREEPOST to CRISP, FREEPOST LON15948, LONDON SE17 1BR
• Contact CRISP to arrange large collections of re-usable phones and chargers from your work place (subject to quantity and location)

Contact Aterah Nusrat at CRISP on 020 7740 6533 for more details.

The Community Safety Mobile Phone Recycling Project is a one year pilot scheme part funded by the London Development Agency through the Elephant Links Partnership.
