We will collect your used ink cartridges and donate the money raised to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation OR a charity of your own choice.

We will pay you £1 for an original manufacturer cartridge** and 50p for a remanufactured cartridge** We’ll collect HP except 364 small chip, Lexmark, Dell and any Canon labeled – PG37, PG40, PG50, PG510, PG512, PG540, PG545, CL37, CL38 CL41, CL51, CL52, CL511, CL513, CL541 and CL546.

The scheme is really simple and easy to do:

A little bit about the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation…

Tuesday 2nd September 2014 marked the 20th anniversary of Roy Castle’s death.

A hugely popular entertainer, dancer, actor and TV presenter, Roy’s brave battle against lung cancer touched the nation and ultimately inspired generations of fundraisers, volunteers and researchers.

Since then, more than £70m has been raised to fund research into the UK’s deadliest cancer killer and provide support to those patients and families affected by this terrible disease.

Lung Cancer is the most common cancer in the world. In the UK, around 41,500 new cases are diagnosed each year. It is the most common cause of cancer death in the Uk, for both men and women.

Everyone is at risk of developing lung cancer. It is known that smokers and ex-smokers have an increased risk of getting lung cancer. However, please remember that other people who have never smoked are also at risk of getting this disease.

If you would like more information on the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and the amazing work they do, please visit their website – http://www.roycastle.org/
