Welcome to the Royal Voluntary Service Recycling Page

The Royal Voluntary Service mobilises volunteers to support those in need, in hospital’s and in the community. The charities volunteers provide support for over-stretched public services and people as they age. The volunteers work at scale in the NHS, freeing up NHS staff to dedicate more time to patient care, and within communities to give practical help and support to people as they age.

Around 3.9 million older people say that television is their main company. Each month the Royal Voluntary Service help 100,000 older people. This is all through offering practical support after a hospital stay, helping out at one of their sociable lunch clubs or through visiting someone for a cup of tea who is at home alone.

How does your money help?

  • £5 could help run a lunch club for older people to meet up with friends
  • £10 could help support older people returning home from a hospital stay
  • £20 could help recruit, train and support more volunteers

Since becoming a partner of the Royal Voluntary Service, The Recycling Factory have donated over £4,500 but we don’t want it to stop there. So, please continue to recycle for the Royal Voluntary Service 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.
