The Recycling Factory has announced that it has raised in excess of £30,000 ($47,300/€35,000) for the British Heart Foundation through the recycling of inkjet cartridges and mobile phones and with the help of supporters of the charity who donated their unwanted electronic items for the cause.
Working with the British Heart Foundation since early 2012, The Recycling Factory will continue to help raise money for the charity in 2013, with the British Heart Foundation receiving up to £4.50 ($7/€5) for every successfully recycled ink cartridge and £30 ($47/35) for every recyclable mobile phone.
Donna Wingfield, Business Development Manager at The Recycling Factory, commented: “We have been working alongside the British Heart Foundation for just over a year now and it has been an absolute joy. Recycling is a great way of being able to help raise vital funds for the charity, and be kind to the environment at the same time. We’d like to thank British Heart Foundation supporters for generously sending in their unwanted items to help achieve such a sizable donation.”
The money raised will go towards the British Heart Foundation’s research into heart disease and help the charity to provide advice and support to over 1,000 heart failure sufferers and the 2.7 million people living with coronary heart disease in the UK.
Speaking on behalf of the charity, Amit Aggarwal, Head of Corporate Partnerships at British Heart Foundation, said: : “It’s fantastic that our partnership with The Recycling Factory can have a direct impact on for those living with heart disease. We are so very grateful to The Recycling Factory and people across the UK who have donated goods for recycling.”
