Support Your School recycling scheme

February 1, 2010 at 10:57 am

This January 2010 a new scheme is launched that provides schools in the UK with the opportunity to fundraise and meet government sustainability targets.

Support Your School is a free service set up specifically to help schools recycle used inkjet printer cartridges and unwanted mobile phones. Support Your School rewards schools with £1 for every printer cartridge and £3 for every mobile phone successfully recycled and reused.

The scheme is supported with an interactive website where a range of promotional materials such as; posters, letters and activity sheets that can be downloaded. These have been created to support teachers and make participation and implementation of the scheme as easy as possible.

The website also includes a full list of items that are suitable for recycling and details of how much the school has raised.

Schools sign up online and order their free recycling pack containing everything they need to recycle for a year. It’s not only the schools who can get involved in the scheme however, as parents and businesses are encouraged to also sign up online. They will also receive a free recycling pack enabling them to recycle inkjet cartridges and mobile phones from their workplace and raise funds on any registered schools behalf.

To sign up or find out more visit the website, email or alternatively you can call free-phone 0800 849 1225.
