We have joined 2 schemes which facilitate the recycling of printer consumables and mobile phones.
This service is provided at no cost to you. The Portsmouth Green Party will receive £1 for every reusable inkjet cartridge on their ‘wanted list’ and up to £70 for every mobile phone.
All inkjet cartridges must pass a visual inspection & electrical test.
Follow the link to order envelopes or a box for free to fill with your recyclable items. Each envelope can hold up to 5 inkjet cartridges. Mobile phones must be returned via a box & this can only be collected once it is filled with 25 items (can be a mixture of mobile phones and inkjet cartridges). Envelopes are sent via freepost & box collection is free!
To order a box, envelopes, or book a collection, go to: http://www.recycle4charity.co.uk/Register/C85428
We are also happy to take inkjet cartridges or mobile phones from you at local party meetings or events.
Please note that you cannot put Epson or Kodak cartridges in the recycling envelopes as their value will not cover postage costs, but these can be included in a box.
Inkjet cartridges must be in a suitable condition to be recycled.
They must not been refilled before and carry only the original equipment manufacturers branding. If not, the cartridges are still recycled but don't provide any funding to us.
We've also joined another scheme, zero waste recycling, which offers a facility for all printer consumables in which they will recycle or reuse all materials. This includes:
You can order a box to return your items for a fee, or use your own box, so long as it fits the criteria below:
There is a fee involved for collection of the box. For reusable cartridges that have a high market value, you will receive a rebate which you can choose to put towards future collections, or donate to us.
