Electronics recycler The Green Foundation is calling on UAE residents to donate unwanted gadgets to raise money for flood relief in Pakistan.

The Dubai-based company has partnered with electronics retailer Emax and supermarket chain Choithram to raise money for Unicef. The Green Foundation will be collecting used mobile phone, laptop, digital camera, iPod or MP3 players and games consoles, and donating the current value of the item to charity to help flood victims.

Drop boxes for unwanted items will be in place in Emax and Choithram stores, with all collected devices being recycled by the Green Foundation's partner in the UK, ShP Ltd, which provides 100% recycling of devices to industry standards including ISO 90001 and ISO 140001.

The Green Foundation, which was founded earlier this year, has previously run a Ramadan campaign with Time Out Dubai and Dubizzle to benefit the Dubai Autism Centre.
