From time to time the Forum features questions about fundraising through donated mobile phone and toner catridges for recycling. Does anyone know of a list of which charities/organisations use which suppliers?
I thought such a list might prove useful to organisations looking to start up such a fundraising activity or for those who were looking to switch supplier.
I’ll kick-start the list with noting that the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) and the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation are currently encouraging their supporters to pass on their unwanted mobile phones, printer and toner cartridges to Eurosource Europe Ltd:
Anyone else care to add to the list? If you have experience of the quality of service offered by your recycling company, do share your thoughts.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) and LaserXchange have today launched a printer cartridge recycling scheme to help raise funds:
The heart charity will be given £1 for every ink cartridge and £2.50 for every laser cartridge recycled.
for its mobile phone and inkjet cartridge recycling service, which generates income for Barnardo’s, RNIB and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
For each recyclable cartridge received, either £1 is donated to charity or 50p is donated and 50 Clubcard points awarded. For
every mobile phone recycled Tesco makes a donation of £5 to charity or alternatively, £2.50 to charity and 250 Clubcard points to the donor.
are run by a printer cartridge recycing company (with offices in the UK and Sweden). Schools can earn much-needed cash by sending their empty cartridges to Collect4School for recycling. Through an associated Collect@Work scheme businesses can also collect cartridges and then have the value donated to their chosen school/schools. Good prices paid, schools can raise a lot of money through this scheme. As can universities/Further Education establishments. Completely free scheme, all resources are free too.
Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland, SeeAbility, and Cardiac Risk in the Young all use Cartridges4charity.co.uk for printer cartridge and mobile phone recycling:
The same company has recently launched a scheme, ink2cash.co.uk, to allow other organisations such as schools, charities and Scout groups to earn income from such donated items. In this case groups collect used ink cartridges, toner cartridges and mobile phones, store them on their premises and then ink2cash.co.uk collects them and makes a payment to the organisation.
We are currently starting up a toner and ink cartridge collection scheme on behalf of NewstrAid. A percentage of the proceeds will go towards NewstrAid.
Spiderweb Systems will collect any used/empty print toners and cartridges from within the Essex area.

Recycling company Eurosource is handling used mobile phones and printer cartridges for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Indeed, it has provided all 180 Marie Curie Cancer Care shops with freepost bags in which customers can post their donated items.
