The Recycling Factory

Groundwork has teamed-up with The Recycling Factory to raise money through donations of old mobile phones and electronic gadgets (sat navs, digital cameras, MP3 players and electronic games consoles) as well as used toners and cartridges.

The Recycling Factory donates up to £4.50 to us for every printer cartridge that can be successfully recycled and between £5 and £30 for every mobile phone that can be successfully recycled.

There are an estimated 90 million redundant mobile phones in cupboards and drawers across the UK – most of which end up in landfill sites which are harmful to the environment. And of the 65 million printer cartridges sold each year, only an estimated 15% are recycled or reused. By recycling your mobile phone, printer cartridges and other gadgets not only are you helping to change places and lives, you’re directly helping the environment too.
