Disused mobile phones and empty ink cartridges are going to be transformed into funds for Action Mental Health in an ecological move towards a greener environment
Action Mental Health is delighted to have been chosen for the recycling partnership with Printer Cartridges Recycling Ltd which aims to counter the UK-wide dumping of more than 30million inkjet cartridges per year.
The specialist recycling firm steps in to recycle these cartridges that would otherwise take up to 1000 years to decompose. It also serves to make something useful of the glut of mobile phones in the UK – which is a huge number when you consider that on average, people ugrade their handsets every 18 months, with only 20% of them being reused or recycled.
Each reception of Action Mental Health’s sites will be provided with a box, in which staff will be invited to donate their disused items, no matter what the condition.
If you know of any businesses who can support us with this please ask them to visit our website.
