– The Recycling Factory teams with Voluntary First Response Team in New Partnership –
The Recycling Factory is delighted to announce that it has entered into a new partnership with the Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service (LIVES) to recycle inkjet and toner cartridges, mobile phones and gadgets such as satellite navigation systems, hand held game consoles, MP3 players and digital cameras in order to raise vital funds for the charity.
Founded in the 1970’s, LIVES began with no funding; doctors had to purchase their own equipment. By the 1980’s, they managed to establish a radio-communications system in order to improve the efficiency of callouts. In 1999, the Chief Executive of the Ambulance Trust invited LIVES to become part of a first response team for heart attack victims. LIVES saw this as an extension of their existing service and readily agreed to participate. It was agreed to call this part of LIVES ‘The First Responder Scheme’.
Through the recycling scheme, supporters can send us their empty inkjet cartridges, old mobile phones and gadgets, and LIVES will receive a donation for each one that can successfully be recycled. There is no cost to the charity for The Recycling Factory to operate the scheme; we supply all recycling materials such as freepost envelopes and collection boxes completely free of charge.
Getting involved couldn’t be easier. To request your materials and start recycling for LIVES, simply contact our team on 0800 091 0696 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to find out more information about the recycling scheme.
