What happens to your old mobile phone after you upgrade to a new model? Ever wondered what to do with your old mobile phone? Recycle It! Nokia has launched an Integrated Nokia Kiosk (INK), its first automated recycling and care kiosk in Malaysia in an effort to promote environmental initiatives in the mobile industry. The kiosks will be rolled out in four locations – Nokia Concept Store at The Gardens, Nokia Store at The Curve, Nokia Store at Suria KLCC and Giant Hypermarket at Bandar Puchong Kinrara. The Kiosk are easy to use. You just need to follow the instructions on the touchscreen. It accepts any brand of mobile phones, batteries, phone covers, travel chargers and accessories. For every phone recycled, the company will donate a tree dedicated to the person who recycled the phone. After dropping off your old phones for recycling, customers will be contacted with instructions on how to view the tree via Google Earth.
