    We have some guy that simply loves coming to collect toner and ink cartridges. They collect on behalf of Action Aid and can be contacted on 07985 539064.

    lol - maybe you don't exist :P

    Worth giving them a call - we've been using them for 2 years and not had a single problem.

    We collect the cartridges etc, they collect and send us a cheque.

    Get the parents and local businesses involved and the money that can be raised is quite substantial for little effort.

    Re: Recycling laser toner cartridges.

    (like I said in another thread, its not because I like Mel C)...

    We use www.recycool.org. Free courier collection and online account management. Dead easy to set up, and they provide a lot of teaching resources as well...

    We use Empty Cartridge
    Empty Cartridge
    They usually come and collect from us, but they do not give any money back for compatible cartridges.

    Ben
    That's cos a) I am a numpty, and b) because I forgot that the site automatically translates URLs, and I was finishing a sentence.

    (but yep - Recycool - no problems whatsoever, apart from them not taking Epson cartridges... I send them off anyway and let them dispose of them )
