Plastic components from waste mobile phones were sorted and characterized using visual, spectroscopic and thermal methods. The mechanical properties of the recovered plastics were investigated by comparing with commercially used reference materials. The results revealed the practical feasibility of these recovered plastics to make new products through mechanical recycling. The samples were also tested for brominated flame retardants (BFRs) using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) technique and the results indicated the absence of BFR in recovered plastics, hence these can be processed without any risk of BFR toxicity.
