Economic Solution for Cell Phone Recycling & Data Removal


Businesses know the power of mobile computing for productivity, creativity, and communication. But that power comes with a cost: hundreds of millions of old mobile phones piling up in offices globally each year.

It’s crucial for companies to develop comprehensive programs to deal with old mobile phones. Simply storing phones, destroying them, or throwing them away fails to solve four key challenges posed by these devices.

  • Proprietary data
  • Environmental toxins
  • Economic value
  • Tracking assets

Revolve Mobile recycling addresses each of these challenges. Securely, easily, responsibly, and cost-free, with solutions built for companies from midsize firms to global enterprises.

Data Solution

Data security is critical for companies and a risk when your firm’s devices reach their end of life. Smartphones hold megabytes of private data, including passwords, texts, documents, and more. To address the data security issue posed by old phones, Revolve Mobile:

  • Uses OEM certified and proprietary data removal tools
  • Scrubs data from broken units
  • Audits every stage of the information removal process
  • Offers secure onsite data scrubbing
  • Industry best practices are deployed and documented to protect your company’s proprietary data

Environmental Solution

Even without the data security issue, throwing away mobile phones is an unsustainable practice: Devices contain toxic materials and heavy metals that leach from landfills. At a time when companies strive for environmental responsibility and accountability, Revolve Mobile recycling is a sustainable way for businesses to handle old mobile phones:

  • Strict no landfill policy
  • Commitment to responsible reuse
  • Donates phone value to charity if desired

Revolve Mobile recycling is the green alternative to destroying or landfilling mobile phones.

Economic Solution

Your old mobile phones aren’t just a liability - they also represent an opportunity. With our experience and focus on corporate and government devices, we’re able to capture more value from your firm’s old mobile phones than other market participants:

  • Receive cash or credits towards services or technology purchases
  • Employees can donate the value to their choice of charities

While most companies don’t have the time, expertise, or resources to effectively unlock remaining phone value, Revolve Mobile does so efficiently and safely.

Tracking Solution

Compliance and regulation are increasingly important as companies deal with old technology assets. So proper tracking and reporting are crucial parts of a comprehensive program for handling mobile phones. That’s why Revolve Mobile offers:

  • Shipment tracking via serial number
  • Access to phone tracking via a customized portal
  • Employee-based data removal tools
  • Serialized database of phones for record-keeping

With Revolve Mobile, your company will have complete records of every unit for every stage of the process through final disposition.
