Furthermore, the Android version of the Recycle Guide allows users to demonstrate
how committed they are to green causes. Users can pledge to recycle certain
amounts of waste and can then share their promises with friends.
Duncan Simpson, Valpak's Director of Sales & Marketing, said:
"It is the aim of Valpak and its membership to encourage more recycling
of packaging, waste electronics and batteries. We originally did this work
through our successful website recycle-more.co.uk. This website helps consumers
and organisations to recycle more items more frequently by offering advice
on what can be recycled and where. In addition, our unique bank locator
allows consumers to access information about where they can recycle specific
Steve Gough, Valpak's CEO, continued:
"By teaming up with T-Mobile we are able to make recycling information,
that was previously only available online, accessible to more people via
new technology. This provides so much more for the householder."
