Recycle for LEPRA. Your old mobile telephones and used toner and printer cartridges can be worth thousands of pounds to LEPRA! LEPRA has teamed up with leading recycling company Eurosource to recycle unwanted mobile phones and used toner cartridges. Every time you donate a cartridge or old mobile phone to us for Eurosource’s Recycling Appeal, we will receive a cash donation.
Eurosource are able to recycle these items and sell them to developing countries, and shares 50% of the profits they make with charities including LEPRA. So put your old mobile phones, chargers and phone batteries, plus printer inkjet and toner cartridges to one side.
You can send them in sturdy packaging to Eurosource (LEPRA) at Freepost SCO4193, Falkirk FK1 2BR. You’ll be helping the environment and helping our fundraising. What’s more, it won’t cost you a penny. If you would like to arrange a collection in your office or local school we are able to send you a promotional collection box which will be delivered and collected for free.
Send us your used postage stamps. LEPRA can raise money through selling your old, used postage stamps. If you have collected some stamps you would like to donate, please contact Irene Allen on (01206) 216732 or send them directly to her at our Head Office address.
