The Recycling Factory has officially exceeded its fundraising target of £500,000 for national animal charity the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). With over £507,938 raised to date, The Recycling Factory is ecstatic at the generosity and support of recyclers across the UK.
Formed in 2005, the partnership enables funds to be raised through the recycling of inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges, mobile phones and electronic gadgets.
The RSPCA have branches across England and Wales, as well as staff and volunteers who work tirelessly, dedicating their time to support the charity’s vision of ending animal cruelty.
Julia Brown, Retail Co-ordinator for the RSPCA commented: “£500,000 is an amazing amount! Thank you to our loyal supporters, with your help we can continue to help the animals and also reduce the ridiculous amounts that go to landfill each year.”
Donna Wingfield, Business Development Manager for The Recycling Factory said: “It wouldn’t have been possible to have raised this phenomenal amount without the continued support of the RSPCA supporters. Their generosity has enabled the partnership to really flourish, and we look forward to helping the charity raise even more funds over the forthcoming years!”
The Recycling Factory donate 100% of the proceeds to the RSPCA and provide supporters with all necessary recycling materials such as envelopes and collection boxes free of charge, and offers a free collection service for those recycling in large volumes. There is no cost for individuals or businesses who wish to become involved; it is an invaluable, free and easy way of supporting the charity.
