Fans who may have old mobile phones, BlackBerry's or iPhones that they no longer need can donate these to be recycled via Fonebank, with a cash amount donated to the WWCF for each handset.
The Foundation is a charitable trust (Registered Charity Number: 1129008) set up by the Warriors to develop Rugby League, education opportunities, facilities and support good causes across Wigan and the surrounding areas. As such it needs to raise in excess of £200,000 in its first year to support the groundbreaking educational and community programmes that it operates.
Fonebank specialise in the reuse and recycling of mobile phones. They provide a simple yet comprehensively managed solution on behalf of WWCF for the disposal of new, end-of-line, surplus or used mobile phones. Currently in excess of 90,000 mobile phones are reused and recycled per month from all over Europe.
Mobile phone re-use and recycling not only raises funds but also helps to prevent pollution of the environment by discarded mobile phones and accessories. Fonebank incorporate and surpass the WEEE initiative (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive) which fits neatly with their Environmental Management System accredited to BS EN ISO14001:1996 and EMAS legislation.
