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.

Every year the charity has to raise more than £1 million from public donations to keep their volunteers on the road and so that they can be there in time of most need.

Lives has more than 70 volunteer doctors, nurses and paramedics who respond to complex or traumatic 999 medical emergencies across Lincolnshire. The charities responders are there for 21,500 people each year across the country, that is 60 people a day.

In total LIVES has 700+ highly trained and dedicated volunteers who get to their neighbours fast to deliver vital care. In 2017, LIVES charity managed to help 23,860 people.

How does your money help?

  • 15p a day could ensure a responder can be there for one person in their time of greatest need
  • 33p a day could ensure a responder is able to provide oxygen therapy to patients with respiratory difficulties
  • 66p a day could buy the essential pads to be used with a defibrillator when a patient suffers a cardiac arrest

Since becoming a partner of Lives, The Recycling Factory have donated over £5,500 but we don’t want it to stop there. So, please continue to recycle for Lives and help us grow our partnership.

This recycling scheme for charities is a completely free of charge service. We donate 100% of the value of all inkjet cartridges, which are successfully recycled.

Only selected inkjet cartridges are eligible for a donation, therefore please ensure that you check to see if the cartridge that you intend to recycle is listed.
