Winner- Mazuma Mobile
We have all seen the cute little robot around, putting in a good word for this prize winning recycling service.

For those customers who aren't tech-savvy, they offer a step by step guide to removing personal information from your phone and they have a 9.8/10 review rating off more than 100k customers on Trustpilot.

EE Reward and Recycle
Consumers are able to trade in both locked and unlocked handsets from any network with EE. They promise to pay the price they quote online if the device condition is found to be consistent with the description, so a good condition iPhone 4 will have to be that, not one that looks like it has been drop kicked a few times and they will pay for postage too!
A safe, secure and watertight website is key and Envirofone has this sorted with an SSL certified website so all your payment details and phone details are kept away from the reach of prying eyes.
