Consumer goods recycling website helps shoppers all over the UK to swap their unneeded purchases with others and make money on their old cell phones

Online PR News – 26-October-2009 – – 26 October 2009 – Recycle.co.uk, the popular internet shopping recycling website, has announced a re-launch of its offering giving a more rewarding product exchange experience. The site lets people advertise unwanted purchased items to other network members for free and now also offers a premium service for consumer buys that need to be recycled in a hurry.

From computers and dishwashers, decorations and fabric swatches, http://www.recycle.co.uk helps unite Brits who want to trade some of their purchases with internet consumers that want to buy them. The site has the belief believe that one person’s junk might be someone else’s treasure, and also aims to cut down on the growing number of skips and landfills throughout the country.

People can list their unwanted purchases for free and now the enhanced and re-launched http://www.recycle.co.uk offers advertisers more reach. As a plus to the website’s standard item listing service it now also gives people courtesy notifications so that registered users can be emailed when a particular item type has just been posted online. If someone is looking for a free fridge, for example, in a special geographical area, they will receive an email notification when one becomes available. The function allows for specific keywords to tailor updates for particular items.

The new site features substantially increase the reach of advertisers as they are able to target their adverts and this quickens the recycling process. Another impressive part of this streamlined offering are dedicated private phone services which allow site members to communicate quickly and effectively.

Another element of the http://www.recycle.co.uk offering is a new mobile phone recycling price comparison tool. Second-hand mobile phones are worth a lot of money – a used iPhone can recycle for £300, a 1-year old Nokia for up to £180 – so it is worth discovering their value. The site lets owners find out what a used phone is worth, then swap it for payment.

Gareth Robinson, owner of Recycle.co.uk and managing director of ASAP Ventures Ltd, commented, “It is often a pleasant surprise to find that someone else can use your unwanted consumer goods, and product recycling has become a really big consumer practice these days. It is ethical and responsible and has an environmental impact. Also, customers can now enjoy making money back on their used mobile phones through our new recycling price comparison function.”
