Recycle Mobile Phones

Recycle your old mobile phones to protect the environment and raise money for our charity. It’s easy and even if your phone is broken, faulty or locked it still has a value.

. Please use collection boxes if you wish to donate your mobiles.

Some phones can raise £70 or more for our charity. The prices change every day so your charity donation will be based on the best returns the market can offer. You will receive a full breakdown of the money raised, once the phones have been sold via auction. 50% of the final sales value will be donated to the charity untouched, the remaining 50% will go to pay for the recycling boxes used, UK postage, testing and handling of the phones, storage, air freight, insurance, disposal of waste and any auction fees.


Recycle Inkjet Cartridges

Recycle your empty inkjet cartridges to help protect the environment and raise money for  our charity. It’s so easy. All you have to do is bring them to the next Social Morning and put them in the recycling boxes

Inkjets fit in the palm of your hand and have a circuit board and jet plate on the bottom. It’s cartridges that have circuit boards that have a recycling value when empty. The circuit boards are patented and cannot be made from new, so an empty must be found and refilled in order to make an alternative to the full OEM product.

 Each wanted cartridge that is recycled could raise £1 for our charity

Makes you can recycle include HP, Dell, Lexmark, Canon, Samsung, Neopost.  Epson or Kodak cartridges have a less  value you can include them in a box collection  if you have at least 25 items.

Only virgin cartridges on our wanted items list raise money for charity when recycled. All inkjet cartridges must pass a visual inspection & electrical test. “Virgin Cartridges” mean cartridges which have not been refilled before and carry only the original equipment manufacturers branding.

Cartridges don’t have donation value if:

  • Damaged
  • They have been previously refilled
  • They have been labelled for another brand like Tesco, PC World or Office Depo
  • They have labels removed or extra holes. (Signs that refilling has been attempted)
