    RedLovesGreen: Return your old device and win!

    Your old cell phones, tablets & accessories have value but not stuck in the drawer. They can be recycled which creates jobs and saves the environment.

    Protecting the Planet is part of Vodacom’s purpose-led journey to improve the lives of the next 100 million customers and halve our environmental impact by 2025. Electronic waste or e-waste is the fastest-growing waste stream in the world. However, e-waste is increasingly being diverted from landfill towards recycling and recovery, creating much-needed jobs.

    Vodacom has introduced the RedLovesGreen initiative to encourage customers to donate or recycle old devices conveniently from the comfort and safety of their homes.

    Donating your device is simple, fast and free of charge. Complete our online form and we will send a donation kit.

    Depending on the condition, make and model of the device, Vodacom will ensure these devices are either:

    • donated  to a deserving school
    • OR
    • recycled by one of Vodacom’s approved recycling agencies

    We will collect your used smartphones and tablets from you. These devices will be data wiped, reboxed and donated if they are in good condition.

    Through this campaign, the first 100 customers who send their devices for donation or recycling will be rewarded with a Takealot voucher to the value of R400.

    All entries will be automatically entered into a draw to stand a chance to win an iPhone 12 Pro.

    Before returning your device, we recommend you do a full reset of the device to its default factory settings (e.g. no password or pin number or any cloud-based protection such as iCloud). Please also disable any ‘find my device’ functionality such as Find My iPhone. If ‘Find my device’ is not disabled, we will not be able to process or donate your device.
