Old cell phones are a gold mine | Made in Germany

Just about all Germans have three of four old mobile telephones lying about in a drawer somewhere. That’s more than 72 million cell phones country-wide. But simply throwing them away is what’s really wasteful. The electronic elements of cell phones contain valuable materials such as copper, silver, gold and rare earth metals which can earn their owners good money!Germans can sell their old mobiles on the Internet portal”Wir kaufens”. The company that runs it, asgoodas, from Frankfurt-Oder receives more than 6000 cell phones a month. In the US and Britain, such opportunities have existed for a long time. Now the business is gaining momentum in Germany.
