How to be part of a more sustainable tech cycle
Trade it in
Bring it in
Bring your old phones and tablets to a TELUS store or authorized dealer near you and we’ll upcycle or recycle them, depending on their condition.
Safe and secure
Your privacy and security is our top priority. We recommend resetting your donated devices to factory settings prior to dropping them off. We will then wipe each device clean, erasing 100% of its data.
More ways to join in our circular economy of devices
Pass them on
Do you have a friend or family member who could make use of your pre-loved phone? Don’t let your old device collect dust - pass it along to be part of the circular economy.
Bring them back
Our Bring-It-Back™ program refurbishes and resells old customer smartphones, giving them a new home rather than adding to electronic waste.
Buy high tech with low impact
By choosing an expertly refurbished smartphone, you’re helping save 25Kg of carbon emissions each year vs buying new. Plus, every device is tested, inspected, disinfected and re-packaged to work like new.
Our commitment adds up
Bridging the digital divide
We believe everyone deserves access to the internet, regardless of geography, ability or socio-economic status. Through our Connecting for Good™ programs, we're ensuring that we're providing free or low-cost connectivity options to those in need.
Since 2001, we've also donated more than 25,000 computers to the Government of Canada's Computers for School program, inspiring other companies to donate their computers through the CEO Pledge to Bridge the Digital Divide.
