Welcome to the World Cancer Research Fund Recycling Page
World Cancer Research Fund UK is the leading charity on cancer prevention and survival research related to diet, physical activity and weight management. We were the first cancer charity to focus on the links between diet and cancer and our vision is to live in a world where no one develops a preventable cancer.
We fund scientific research into cancer prevention to ensure we have the latest and most authoritative information at our fingertips and then translate the results of this research into practical, easy-to-use tools and advice to help people make informed lifestyle choices to reduce their cancer risk.
We are not powerless against cancer – recent research has shown that about a third of the most common cancers (around 89,000 cases a year) are preventable through a healthy diet, weight management and physical activity.
Together we can keep learning more about cancer prevention to help even more people to a healthier, cancer free future and keeping loved ones together for longer.
The scheme is completely free of charge and 100% of the value of all items successfully recycled will be donated to your chosen charity. There are certain items that are eligible on the charity scheme so please ensure that you check to see if yours is listed.
If your item 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.
