The Recycling Factory, which has in the past raised substantial amounts of money for a number of different charities, has announced that it has exceeded its half a million pound fundraising target for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), with over £507,938 ($835,075/€607,195) raised so far for the charity through the recycling of ink and toner cartridges, mobile phones and other electronic gadgets.
The recycler has been raising money in this way since its partnership with the RSPCA began in 2005, and says that it is “ecstatic” at the generosity and support of recyclers across the UK.
100 percent of the proceeds are donated to the RSPCA, with supporters provided with envelopes and collection boxes free of charge and a free collection service offered for those recycling large volumes.
Donna Wingfield, Business Development Manager for The Recycling Factory, said: “It wouldn’t have been possible to have raised this phenomenal amount without the continued support of the RSPCA supporters. Their generosity has enabled the partnership to really flourish, and we look forward to helping the charity raise even more funds over the forthcoming years!”
Meanwhile Julia Brown, Retail Co-ordinator for the RSPCA, commented: “£500,000 is an amazing amount! Thank you to our loyal supporters, with your help we can continue to help the animals and also reduce the ridiculous amounts that go to landfill each year.”
Other charities that have benefitted from donations from The Recycling Factory in the past year include the National Deaf Children’s Society, The Gurkha Welfare Trust, British Heart Foundation, and MS Society; with the recycler shortlisted for a fundraising award by the Partners in November.
