Data Security

One of the biggest advantages of Community Appeal, compared to many other mobile phone recycling programmes, is our commitment to and understanding of data security.

Every mobile phone we receive has its data wiped as standard, which includes removing data such as photos, contacts, emails and music. It is therefore important that you remove any data you wish to keep before we collect your devices.

However, with today’s rapidly advancing technology we are acutely aware that for some businesses data security is of the highest importance. We can offer you the reassurance that your mobile phones will be dealt with in the most secure manner possible. We take data security extremely seriously; our reputation is reliant on it so we offer the most secure service available. We use the data wiping service provided by FutureDial, the global leader in data erasure, which guarantees 100% data sanitisation. Once erased, the data cannot be recovered with any existing technology. This service carries a small charge of £2.50 per device and we can provide auditable erasure reports.

When the highest level of data security is required we can perform data sanitisation on site, so the phones are securely wiped even before they leave your premises.


"Our partnership with Community Appeal provides us with the opportunity to not only save the planet but raise much needed funds for our Hospice. Zoe's Place Baby hospice is such a special place and makes such a huge difference to the lives of our children and their families. It costs our charity in excess of £3,500 per day just to maintain our current level of care and we can only achieve this through ongoing initiatives such as the recycling scheme promoted by Community Appeal.”

"Recycling used cartridges and mobile phones is a simple and effective way to complement your fundraising strategy. Furthermore, if you work with Community Appeal, they do all the administration and collections, so all you need to do is tell your supporters about the scheme!"

"Against Breast Cancer has been pleased to be a supported charity of Community Appeal. By encouraging our supporters to collect printer cartridges and old mobile phones we have been able to raise £63,000 since 2005.
The charity is dedicated to funding ground breaking research to improve detection and increase survival after breast cancer diagnosis. The funds raised through Community Appeal’s recycling schemes allow us to continue making real progress in this important research.
Thank you Community Appeal! "
