    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.

    Tesco uses

    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 for printer cartridge and mobile phone recycling:

    The same company has recently launched a scheme,, 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 collects them and makes a payment to the organisation.

    Someone might have taken your three posts suggesting using your company as an impartial recommendation, rather than touting for business.
