We’d like to thank everyone for taking part and working so hard in collecting all those cartridges. It takes time and commitment to make your schemes successful, and without you we wouldn’t have any cartridges to recycle or be able stop them going into landfill.
May also saw our very first Eco-schools competition winner! Congratulations to ‘Cleaswell Primary School, Guidepost’ for winning the first printer in our ‘100 printers giveaway’ For more info on this visit our schools page – https://www.emptiesplease.com/schools/ http://eco-schools.org.uk/eco-schools-partners/empties-please/
We also announced that we can now recycle ANY model of HP branded toner. As long as they have the HP logo on them you are very welcome to return them to us. We pay 50p per toner on our list.
The school year is also drawing to a close so if you have a full bin to return then do so in plenty of time so we can get your payments to you before the end of term. We can then send you a new bin and set of recycle bags all ready for September. Simply click this link and select either ‘white’ or ‘brown’ – https://www.emptiesplease.com/recycle-bin-request/
That’s it for May! Keep up the great recycling!
