We can make a difference by recycling used mobile phones
Today, many children use online media to chat with their friends and play games. Unfortunately, many children also experience cyber-bullying and online harassment. TDC Group has therefore launched a nation-wide collection of used mobile phones. The phones are sold for recycling and reuse, and all profits go to the Danish organisation Children's Welfare. Through our joint project, “Parents in a Digital World”, we aim to support parents in guiding their children towards positive online experiences.
Employees at TDC Group are collecting used mobiles to support children online
Throughout TDC Group, we strive to ensure positive online togetherness among children. That’s why our employees are leading the way in collecting used mobile phones from their homes as well as from family and friends. At our offices in Copenhagen and Aarhus, the stack of collected phones continues to grow.
Donate your old mobile in our YouSee shops
You can take part in our collection for the benefit of Children's Welfare by donating your old mobile phone in one of the collection boxes placed in our 44 YouSee shops in Denmark, or visit the YouSee On Tour bus. Please remember to first delete data from your mobile if your device is still in working order. As an appreciation of your donation, you will receive a diploma from Children's Welfare. Find your local YouSee store, or see the schedule for YouSee On Tour.
Donate your used mobiles through TDC Business or at TDC Business Centers
As a company, you also have the opportunity to donate your used phones. You can hand them over to your Key Account Manager at TDC Business, or at one of the 15 TDC Business Centers. If you collect more than 30 phones, they can be picked up at your address. If you collect less than 30, you can get paid postage and send in your mobiles. You can also get a diploma and an online badge for use on your company website. Register as a company, or find your local TDC Business Center.
Secure data erasure of your old phone

However, you are responsible for deleting all personal data from the phone(s) prior to donating.For companies that collect more than 30 phones, we offer data erasure as a service in partnership with Blancco Data Erasure. If the data cannot be erased, the phones will be destroyed and used for recycling.
