A Boston-based inkjet and toner recycling company is celebrating after raising more than £125,000 for a national charity.
The Recycling Factory (TRF), a division of Dynamic Cassette International, donates £5 for each inkjet cartridge that it successfully recycles to the British Heart Foundation.
Since 2012, when the partnership was initiated, the Marsh Lane firm has raised in excess of £125,000, which it says will ‘directly contribute to helping the charity’,
Cassandra Gonzalez, on behalf of TRF said: “We’ve been working alongside the British Heart Foundation for three years now and it has been so rewarding to see the partnership flourish.
“Recycling is a great way of being able to help raise vital funds for the charity, as well as being eco-friendly and most importantly, it’s completely free for anyone who wants to get involved.
“We’d like to thank British Heart Foundation supporters for generously sending in their unwanted inkjets to help achieve such an incredible donation.”
A spokesman said that, since it began, the partnership has ‘gone from strength to strength’ and The Recycling Factory hopes further significant funds can be raised with the help of the charity’s supporters.
Fundraising manager for the BHF Carl Jones said: “We’re extremely grateful for the continued support of The Recycling Factory.
“It’s incredible to think that something as simple as donating your unwanted ink cartridges could raise such an incredible amount – enough to fund a ground breaking research project for a whole year that will bring hope to the millions affected by heart disease.”
