– UK recycling company exceeds previous year’s fundraising –
Lincolnshire based recycling company The Recycling Factory has reached a milestone £100,000 of its 2011 fundraising target of £175,000 for the RNLI. The Recycling Factory and RNLI have been in partnership since 2008, recycling inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges, mobile phones and latterly electronic gadgets, to raise vital funds for the charity.
The RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) is the charity that saves lives at sea. It has over 4,600 volunteer crew members, providing a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the UK and Republic of Ireland, as well as a seasonal lifeguard service with more than 160 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK. Every penny raised through the recycling scheme will fund training for crew members, buy essential equipment and help to maintain some of the 330 lifeboats that are in operation.
In November 2010, the partnership exceeded all expectations by achieving a record breaking total of £100,000 and only half way through 2011, that same figure has already been realised – four months ahead of plan. The Recycling Factory is now on course to raise their staggering £175,000 target before the end of 2011.
Members and supporters of the RNLI have helped the charity reach this fantastic figure through the recycling of empty inkjet and toner cartridges, mobile phones and more recently, gadgets such as satellite navigation systems, MP3 players, hand-held game consoles and digital cameras.
The Recycling Factory encourages businesses and individuals to recycle their used ink cartridges and mobile phones and has already raised almost £2 million for its charity partners. They collect and remanufacture over 700,000 inkjet & toner cartridges each month at their site in Boston, Lincolnshire.
