Closure of our Recycling Scheme
The Seedley and Langworthy Trust are no longer able to provide the printer cartridge and mobile phone recycling service, due to the high levels of costs associated with collecting printer cartridges and mobile phones from our centres. According to a survey carried out by the Trust two years ago, only three centres out of 50 said that they would pay for a collection if the Trust introduced a service charge. We were also unable to secure further funding for our printer cartridge and mobile phone recycling project, as funding and grants opportunities are not widely available to maintain an existing recycling scheme.
We would like to thank all our centres for working with us and wish them all the best of luck with recycling their printer cartridges and mobile phones.
Please find below a list of companies we put together, who recycle printer cartridges and mobile phones in England. If you do not wish to use one of the companies listed below, please do a search on the Internet to find the right recycling company for you. We are hoping that our centres will continue recycling their printer cartridges and mobile phones, although the Trust is no longer able to offer the service.
