A CARING council is launching a trash to cash recycling initiative to raise money for sick kids. Angus Council wants to help charity CHAS (the Children's Hospice Association Scotland), which is currently running a £10million appeal to build a children's hospice in Balloch.

CHAS runs Rachel House in Kinross and a service in the Highlands and Islands known as Rachel House at Home, which supports life-limited children in their own homes.

Angus Council staff will set aside used inkjet cartridges that would normally be thrown away, as well as unwanted mobile phones. These will be given to leading Scots recycling company The Recycling Appeal, which will make a donation to CHAS for every item received.

Convenor Mowatt of Angus Council explained: "CHAS supports children and families in Angus and we felt it appropriate to do something to support them. We can also help the environment at the same time!"

Agnes Malone, Chief Executive of CHAS said: "We're very grateful to the Council for their support. It's a fantastic way of raising cash and keeping so-called 'waste' items out of landfill dumps. Although our services are free of charge to families,  we rely on generous gestures of this nature to meet our considerable costs."

Anyone with old mobile phones or used printer cartridges to donate to the CHAS recycling appeal should call 08712 50 50 50 or visit recyclingappeal.com
