Zapper is a trade-in platform with an eco mindset. Where our competitors might reject items that have no value, we help you do your bit for the environment by recycling your old Books, CDs, DVDs and Games. We'll make sure they're given a new life.
To recycle your items we partner with Reuseaworld. They're an award-winning organisation with a powerful mission - to never allow a single book to go to landfill.
How Your Items Are Recycled
When your books cannot be resold, we'll recycle them for the good of the environment. Your books might be pulped and turned into material such as cardboard, paper, packaging filler, toilet paper and more. By turning unwanted books into paper-based materials, it saves trees from being chopped down.
Some 'unsaleable' books might be sent abroad to be redistributed to schools. Instead of going to landfill the books can be used to teach foreign children the English language. It's just one of many reasons to recycle your old stuff with Zapper.
It's really important that we save as many CDs, DVDs and Games from going to landfill. The plastic in them can take thousands of years to decompose in a landfill. Likewise, burning plastics releases toxic pollution so it's vital they're re-purposed.
CDs, DVDs and Games are made of useful materials like aluminium and polycarbonate plastic, so they can be ground down and turned into plastic pellets ready to be used again.
If you have any questions about our recycling practices, don't hesitate to get in touch.
