British Heart Foundation raises £30k in a year from recycling inkjet cartridges and mobile phones

The British Heart Foundation has raised over £30,000 through the recycling of inkjet cartridges and mobile phones donated by their supporters. The charity has been working with UK-based recycling company, The Recycling Factory, since January 2012.

The charity will receive up to £4.50 for each cartridge that can be successfully recycled and up to £30 for every recyclable mobile phone.

Earlier this week The Recycling Factory announced that it had generated £22,000 in 2012 for the MS Society, bringing the total raised for the charity since 2011 to nearly £40,000.
