They say one person’s rubbish is another person’s treasure - this is certainly true for Macmillan Cancer Support who are looking for organizations to join their Recycling Appeal that will turn old mobile phones and used printer cartridges into much needed funds for the charity.
Clara White, Macmillan Fundraising Manager says: 'The recycling scheme is an easy way to raise money for Macmillan. It doesn’t incur any costs, takes up very little time and is organised almost entirely by Redeem Recycling Appeal. Each mobile phone is worth an average of £3.60 and each printer cartridge an average of 60p and it will all add up to help the charity.'
Sally continues: 'Lots of offices throw away their inkjet and toner cartridges too – why not sign up to be a part of our Recycling Scheme and donate them instead? You’ll be helping our valuable work, and you’ll be helping the environment at the same time. It’s simple to be a part of the initiative and really takes no time to be involved.'
'The money raised will help people who receive a cancer diagnosis, and their families. Macmillan rely on donations for 96% or our income, without which we would not be able to fund the services which make such a difference.'
'As well as raising money for Macmillan, recycling old phones and cartridges is better for the environment than simply throwing them out. So why not do your bit and help people affected by cancer too by signing up for the scheme.'
To sign up to the scheme, go to Recycling Appeal. If you have any queries, feel free to ring our Fundraising Support Centre on 0300 1000 200.
