Recycle Dumbphones

So the market is saturated with sites and companies that will buy and resell/cycle your old smart phone but does anyone know what you can do with the older phones from before the smartphone age that are filling the drawers around the house?

The wheelie bin just doesn't seem right.

cheers

This stuff should never go into the rubbish.
There is some really nasty stuff in electronics.

In France you take it back to the shop or the local dump
has an old-electronics collection point where it's disposed on
correctly. (Maybe it gets sent to UK landfill? )
