The cartridge recycling company has announced that over £1,000 ($1,700/€1,247) has been raised so far through its staff’s participation in the 39th annual British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Bike Ride on 15 June, with DCi volunteering to match the company’s final donation figure.
According to The Recycling Company, the event is Europe’s largest charity bike ride, with around 28,000 people cycling the 54 mile route to raise money for the charity. The company has been working alongside the charity for two years, raising more than £90,000 ($152,700/€112,200) through the recycling of ink and toner cartridges as well as mobile phones and other electronic gadgets.
Steve Robinson, who participated in the bike ride on behalf of The Recycling Factory, said: “This year was a real challenge but an experience I think none of us will forget. The event was so well organised and the atmosphere was fantastic. We are all so proud to have taken part to help raise funds for such a worthy cause.”
