From 1 July 2013, The Recycling Factory will accept any Epson ink cartridges through their recycling schemes. This will provide “vital funds” for both those wishing to raise money for themselves and charities.
The Recycling Factory’s next step will be to offer their charity partners up to 15p for every cartridge they recycle, starting next quarter. The company has previously raised money for various charities, such as the British Heart Foundation, the Gurkha Welfare Trust, MS Society and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Paul Needham, Operations Manager for The Recycling Factory, explained: “This is a big development for our recycling schemes. Epson cartridges are one of the most popular brands in the UK – being able to recycle them means we have the potential to significantly increase our recycling partners’ revenue, as well as helping to further reduce the millions of ink cartridges to landfill each year. To date The Recycling Factory has raised over £2.8 million for UK charities – adding Epson into the recycling mix means the goal posts for our recyclers will suddenly widen.”
