Shenzhen phone recycling

leave a comment »

In a somewhat hidden corner of Hua Qiang Bei there’s two large buildings that are mainly dedicated to the recycling of cellphones. These though aren’t the same as the cellphone malls found in the districts’ main street. Here cellphones are traded as a commodity or even as a raw material. Hundreds of small companies work with (and against) each other to squeeze every bit of value out of yesterdays mobile phones.
