How to Help Charity with My Recycling

How to Help Charity with My Recycling

You’ve heard of charity walks and charity skydives, but what about charity recycling? Yes, it’s perfectly possible to help the planet and some good causes by recycling. Here’s how you can get in on the act.

Hold a Charity Recycling Event

A good old jumble sale is a great way to recycle unwanted items. Ask people to donate their old goods which can then be sold to raise money for a good cause. Household goods, clothes, books, toys are all popular. You’ll be raising money for good causes and giving perfectly good items a new home.

Start a Charity Recycling Event in Your School or Business

Whether it’s collecting cans for cash or starting off a textile bank, schools and businesses can always do more good. For businesses, it adds to their green and charity supporting credentials. For schools, it’s a great way to get kids talking and learning about recycling.

Easy Ways to Start Recycling for Charity

You don’t have to hold an event to help charity with your recycling. Here are some other ways you can get involved.

Recycle Your Cans

When it comes to charity recycling, recycling your cans for cash is an easy way to help out. Plus, it saves cans from ending up in the environment where they can cause pollution or harm wildlife.

Head over to the Think Cans website and see where you can recycle cans for cash where you live. Are you a school or business? If you collect enough cans, you might be able to bag yourself a Green Can Award from Every Can Counts. Hello, green credentials to boost your reputation.

Recycle Your Clothing and Textiles

Many people donate their clothes to charity shops and that’s great. However, companies like collectmyclothes.co.uk will pick up your donations from your address. Your clothes are then converted into cash for charities like the Alzheimer’s Society and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Turn Your Empty Ink Cartridges into Cash

What do you usually do with your old ink cartridges? Even more importantly, do you actually know what to do with them? Recycle 4 Charity is a company that relieves you of that problem. It recycles old ink cartridges for free. Just choose the charity you want to support, post your cartridges to Recycle 4 Charity, and they’ll do the rest. Charity recycling at its most convenient.

Recycle Your Old Mobile Phones with Oxfam

How many old handsets do you have lying around in a drawer? Did you know that you could help support charities by recycling them? You can take your old phones to any Oxfam shop. There they’ll wipe any data, test it for safety, and resell it. Any phones that aren’t in good enough condition to be sold will still be sent for recycling. Oxfam spends the funds from your charity recycling on building wells, buying water tanks, school books, and other vital things for people in developing countries.

We hope we’ve inspired you to get a charity recycling scheme of your own going. Or at least to declutter those drawers and wardrobes, and sell those unwanted items to raise funds for good causes. Nothing beats doing good for the planet and for other people. So get collecting those cans and sorting out those old clothes! For more on how to recycle old mobile phones.
