The partnership will see toner and inkjet cartridges, mobile phones and other gadgets collected for and recycled by The Recycling Factory, with proceeds going to the charity, which focuses on helping military veterans in terms of their mental health. The nationwide scheme in the UK will see supporters sending in items to the recycler at no cost to the charity.
The charity was set up in 1919, and is said to be the “UK’s leading charity specialising in the care” of veterans’ mental health, noting that it “is currently treating more than 5,400 ex-service men and women suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety”. More about the charity can be found at www.combatstress.org.uk.
The Recycling Factory added that “all recycling materials such as freepost envelopes and collection boxes are supplied completely free of charge”, and Combat Stress joins a wide range of UK-based charities in partnering with the company, with the Royal National Lifeboat Association (RNLI) recently receiving a boost through fundraising by the recycler.
