Welcome to the Lives Recycling Page

Founded in 1975, The Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service (LIVES) was initially a doctor-run organisation developed to work alongside the Emergency Services at serious trauma accidents. Today their First Responders are trained to deliver basic life support, early defibrillation, patient assessment, oxygen therapy and general patient care.

The charity started with no funds, and doctors had to purchase their own equipment. By the 1980s, 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 develop 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’.

During 2012, LIVES Responders and Medics attended more than 18,000 calls, and their 168 First Responder Groups throughout Lincolnshire helped save over 200 lives.

The recycling scheme is completely free of charge and 100% of the value of all inkjet cartridges successfully recycled will be donated to this charity. There are certain cartridges which are eligible for the charity scheme, so please ensure that you check to see if yours is listed.

If your inkjet cartridge is listed and you would like to send it into us, please click on the freepost downloadable label below and affix to your own packaging. Please note that the freepost weight limit is 1kg; if you have multiple items and think that you may exceed this weight limit, you may have to split them into smaller packages.
