As a representative of a recycling company, I was delighted to be part of the Red Nose Day Recycling Appeal launch.
Eurosource has pledged to recycle old mobile phones and empty inkjet printer cartridges to raise funds for Comic Relief.
I’d like to thank readers who have already donated to the appeal, which doesn’t ask anyone to part with their cash. They can simply donate something that would probably have ended up in the bin.
It’s not just the charity which gains – the benefits are far wider.
Our environment is being damaged more and more by pollution, and mobiles and cartridges contribute to this when they are binned, as they end up in landfill sites.
Recycling them allows them to be refurbished or refilled, and, most importantly, re-used – many even end up in developing countries where landline infrastructure is scarce. So post your old mobiles and inkjet cartridges (other than Epson cartridges) by 15 April to Red Nose Day Recycling Appeal, Freepost NAT 1990, Falkirk, FK2 9BR. Address labels can be downloaded at www.recyclingappeal. com/rednoseday.
If you work in an office and you’ve got large toner cartridges to donate, please don’t send them to the address above. Once you have ten or more, call us on 08712 50 50 50 and we’ll send a courier to collect them – free.
