Lincolnshire based company, The Recycling Factory, has helped to raise £100,000 for The RNLI (The Royal National Lifeboat Institution) by recycling old ink cartridges and mobile phones in the past year, having partnered with the charity since 2008.

The Recycling Factory estimates that more than 30 million ink cartridges and 90 million mobile phones are dumped in the UK each year.

The Recycling Factory encourages businesses and individuals to recycle their used ink cartridges and mobile phones and has already raised over £1 million for its charity partners. It collects and remanufactures over 500,000 inkjet cartridges per month at its site in Boston, Lincolnshire.
