Printer at home or in the office? Going to upgrade your mobile phone? Then you can help raise funds for Computer Aid!
Computer Aid International is working with a leading recycling company to recycle empty and used printer toner cartridges, printer fusers and unwanted mobile phones.
This is a great way to help protect the environment at the same time as raising funds for Computer Aid - which provides refurbished IT equipment to schools, hospitals and not for profit organisations in the developing world.
If you have either laserjet or inkjet cartridges to recycle, then we will send you a Computer Aid recycling box and have it collected directly from your premises when full.
To see whether we are able to recycle your printer cartridges please click here. We are able to accept all cartridges on this list. Unfortunately, if your toner cartridges are not listed then we cannot accept them. We also accept HP Laserjet fusers.
If you would like to recycle your mobile phone then e-mail Darren at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and we will send you a freepost envelope. Simply insert your phone and pop it in the post back to us, but please remove your SIM and check that data isn’t stored on the device first.
Any data left of the device will be wiped and the phone restored to factory settings. Any SIM or SD cards left in donated mobile phones will be destroyed by our recycling partner.
Nothing at all! This service is completely free of charge.
We accept all mobile phones with batteries but recent changes to the printer cartridge recycling scheme mean only certain types of cartridges can be accepted.
If you are able to donate your unwanted mobile phones, please remove your SIM and check that data isn’t stored on the device.
Below is a PDF document which lists acceptable equipment, please do not add any other items to your box.
Once your box is full then call the number on the side of the box (01635 876 900), it will then be collected and a new box delivered in its place.
The collection box has been designed to store up to 18 toner cartridges, (you can also add inkjet cartridges and mobile phones) and measures 62 x 54 x 42cm. The box will be sent to you flat packed, if you require more than one box then please indicate how many when filling out the form.
Yes, of course. Just mention that you need one when arranging a collection.
They are sold to remanufacturers who clean, repair and refill them and then resell the items. Profit from the sale of your cartridges goes to Computer Aid International.
Donating your mobile phone to charity will ensure that it is recycled in an environmentally friendly way by our recycling partner. The proceeds of recycling will contribute towards Computer Aid's goals of reducing poverty through providing practical ICT solutions.
To order a collection box, just fill in the below form so you can start recycling straight away!
