As a representative of leading recycling company Eurosource, I was delighted to be part of the recent Red Nose Day Recycling Appeal launch.

Eurosource has pledged to recycle old mobile phones and empty inkjet printer cartridges to raise funds for Comic Relief.

I’d like to sincerely thank the readers who have donated to the appeal – although it was only launched last week, there has been a great response. And unlike many fundraisers, it’s not just the charity that gains. Our environment is being damaged by pollution, and mobiles and cartridges contribute to this. Recycling them allows them to be refurbished or refilled, and most importantly reused.

So, readers, search your cupboards for your old mobiles, and please stop binning your inkjet cartridges (but please note that we can’t recycle Epson cartridges). Instead, post them to Red Nose Day Recycling Appeal, FREEPOST NAT 1990, Falkirk, FK2 9BR. Address labels can be downloaded at where you can also find out how much will go to Comic Relief.

If you work in an office and you’ve got large toner cartridges to donate, please do not send them to the address above. Once you have 10 or more, give us a call on 08712-505050 and we’ll send a courier to collect them free.

Please post anything you wish to donate by 15 April so we can get the proceeds to Comic Relief on time – and thanks again to readers who have already shown their support.

Rob Morton, Eurosource
