What are the benefits of recycling my Google Pixel?

There are plenty of good reasons for recycling your Google Pixel:

  • You get money for an old device you’re not using anymore
  • It’s an opportunity to declutter your home
  • It’s better for the environment than just throwing it away
  • Your phone gets a new lease of life, either as a refurbished device or broken down into parts for other gadgets

What happens once I've sold my Google Pixel?

After sending your device to the recycler, all you need to do is wait for them to check it – once that’s done, you’ll automatically get paid via your chosen payment method.

As for your Google Pixel, what happens next depends on the model and condition of the phone. If it’s a recent release and still in decent condition, the recycler will fix it up and sell it on.

On the other hand, if it’s a dated model or damaged beyond repair, it’ll be broken down into spare parts. Any toxic materials will be safely disposed of, while any valuable metals or components will be extracted and reused in new gadgets.

Can I trade in a broken or damaged Google phone?

Sure – many recyclers are happy to buy broken or damaged phones. Of course, you won’t get as much cash as one that’s brand new or in perfect condition, but you can likely still get some money for it.

Just bear in mind that if your device is broken, the buyer may need to revise their quote once they receive it. To avoid any unexpected surprises, try to be as honest as possible when describing its condition.

Should I wipe my data before sending my phone?

Definitely – to protect your personal information, it’s always best to back up and delete all files and data from your phone before sending it off.

First, back up all your important files, such as photos, apps and contacts, to either an external hard drive or cloud storage – Google Drive is a good option.

Once you’re satisfied that you’ve saved all your data, it’s time to wipe your phone with a factory reset. You can do this through your phone’s Settings (tap “System”, then “Reset options”, and then “Erase all data”).
