Working with The Recycling Factory, the RNLI last year beat its target of £100,000 raised from recycling inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges, mobile phones and electronic gadgets.
The income raised has helped fund the training of two lifeboat volunteers, at a cost of £1255 each, across all of the RNLI’s 237 stations for a whole year.
RNLI supporters send in their empty cartridges using freepost envelopes or, if they have larger volumes, in free recycling boxes. The Recycling Factory say that “100% of each item’s value is donated directly to the charity” and the service is “completely free of charge”.
