Recycling Factory set to exceed MS Society target

September 12, 2012

The UK cartridge recycling company celebrates overtaking 2011 fundraising target for the multiple sclerosis charity, and rapidly approaches 2012 goal.

The Recycling Factory, a UK-based charity that recycles printer cartridges and mobile phones, has announced that it is set to achieve its fundraising target of £20,000 ($32,174/€24,994) for the MS (multiple sclerosis) Society.

The MS Society began partnering with the Recycling Factory in early 2011, recycling inkjet cartridges and laser toners as well as additional electronic gadgets to provide donations to the charity’s on-going research and aid, and has provided a running total in excess of £33,000.

Fundraising through 2012 has climbed above the 2011 target of £16,126 ($25,942/€20,153), with £16,900 ($271,878/€211,206) already collected, and the recycling specialist is confident that their 2012 target will be reached in the remaining four months of the year.

Donna Wingfield, Business Development Manager, commented: “To have beaten our 2011 target at this stage in the year clearly demonstrates how committed MS supporters are to the recycling scheme. The current financial climate doesn’t always allow people to give in a monetary sense; therefore our partnership allows the public to show their support, without committing financially. We would like to thank them for that commitment; here’s to another £16,000!”

The Recycling Factory has partnered with a wide range of charities, including Make-A-Wish, Mencap and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
