We have come across a great new and easy way to raise funds for our school through recycling used ink cartridges.
We are working with a company called ‘Empties Please’. They collect and recycle used ink and toner cartridges the environmentally friendly way and will donate the money raised back to us!
It’s very simple. All we have to do is collect used ink cartridges and put them in our recycle bin. ‘Empties Please’ will collect the bin when it’s full and then donate money raised straight back to our school with a certificate to display in our reception area.
They will pay us 75p for each original branded manufacturer ink cartridge*,25p for a remanufactured ink cartridge* and 50p per Original Manufacturer laser toner cartridge*.
Extra bags can be collected from us if required but you can fit quite a few cartridges into one bag. But please don’t put them into the post they must come back to the recycle bin at school.
The more cartridges we can collect the more we can raise. The sky’s the limit! Let’s make it a great success. Happy collecting!
* Unfortunately we are unable to recycle Epson, Brother, Kodak ink cartridges, or any individual colour Canon ink tanks
