Recycle for Red Nose Day

There is another way to support Comic Relief this year without parting with cash - you can recycle your old mobiles or inkjet printer cartridges.

As the build up to Red Nose Day on March 11 gets underway, top recycling company Eurosource has pledged to give cash to Comic Relief for every mobile and cartridge recycled through its new appeal.

This brilliant eco-friendly fundraiser will help raise money for this worthwhile charity, which is committed to helping end poverty and social injustice in the UK and the world's poorest countries.

Jamie Rae, chief executive of Eurosource, said: "To date, we are proud to have raised almost £1.5million for various major charities, and we are looking forward to helping a charity which is renowned for doing such fantastic work.

"Red Nose Day encourages people to do something out-of-the-ordinary to raise funds. Sadly, for a lot of people in Britain, recycling is out-of-the-ordinary…so we want to encourage more people to be environmentally friendly and help this great charity at the same time.

"So come on - save your old mobiles and inkjet cartridges from ending up in landfill where they can cause pollution, and use them to help Comic Relief!"

Different mobiles and cartridges are worth different sums of money depending on various factors like model and age. Eurosource has created a dedicated website where you can find out which mobiles and inkjet cartridges can be recycled, and exactly how much will be given to Comic Relief for each one - www.recyclingappeal.com/rednoseday. PLEASE NOTE that Epson cartridges cannot be accepted.

If you want to help the Red Nose Day Recycling Appeal, all you have to do is pop your old mobile or inkjet cartridge in a secure envelope and post it to Comic Relief Recycling Appeal, Freepost NAT1990, Falkirk, FK2 9BR - easy, and postage costs nothing.

Mobiles and cartridges must be posted by April 15th to allow time for the donations to be processed and the proceeds to be sent to Comic Relief.
