Welcome to Bridge2Aid Recycling Page
Bridge2Aid (B2A) provides dental pain relief to tens of thousands each year in East Africa, as well as giving a hand up to some of the region’s most ostracised people.
We work closely with the Tanzanian government, training rural health workers in emergency dentistry and host over 100 UK volunteers each year through the Dental Volunteer Programme (DVP). Since starting our work in 2004, we have provided over 1.4 million of the world’s poorest people with access to vital, safe, pain relieving treatment.
We are committed to helping poor and disabled people in Mwanza, Tanzania, and are working with them to meet their basic needs, things which we would normally take for granted.
Please start recycling your empty inkjet and toner cartridges and old mobile phones – you could help us continue our work and help tens of thousands more people this year.

Recycling your mobile phones
Due to new guidance from Royal Mail, freepost envelopes cannot be used to recycle your mobile phones. However, you can deposit these items at collection points for free – which can also be used to recycle inkjet and toner cartridges.
Simply insert the battery into the phone and ensure that the device is switched off. Wrap your mobile phone in a protective wrapping to prevent accidental activation (e.g. wrap in bubble wrap, protective plastic or tissue paper) and pop in the collection box.
If you think you could fill a box or would like to take a box for your place of work, call The Recycling Factory on 0800 091 0696. If you would be happy to promote the box for members of the public to drop off items, please let us know when ordering and we can display your details on this page.
Alternatively, you can send your phone to us via Recorded Delivery – simply package your phone in rigid packaging (including a note to explain you wish to recycle for the charity) to avoid any movement or accident activation during transit and take it to your nearest post office counter. Your name and address must be clearly visible on the outer packaging. For more information about the Royal Mail’s packaging guidance, please click here (page 23).
The address to send your phone via Recorded Delivery is: The Recycling Factory, Marsh Lane, Boston, PE21 7TX.
Interested in recycling in large volumes?
Simply call The Recycling Factory on 0800 091 0696 for more information and to order free collection boxes. A free collection will be arranged once your box is full.
