Welcome to Money to Schools, the Fundraising through Recycling programme for Schools, Clubs and Societies in the UK. By recycling empty printer cartridges and old mobile phones with us you can raise valuable funds for your school or group and help the environment at the same time!
Money to Schools offers schools and clubs the opportunity to earn unlimited cash based on the volume of cartridges and mobile phones that they return. Registration is free and simple and can be completed on this website by clicking on the ‘Register Now’ button on the left of this page.
After registering you will receive a welcome email containing your account number and we will send you a Welcome Pack full of tips, information, posters, stickers and more. There is also plenty of marketing material available (including more posters and a draft letter to parents) to help raise awareness of your recycling programme - take a look at our ‘Resources’ page.
Did you know that every printer cartridge recycled can save a litre of oil. Only 10% of empty printer cartridges are actually recycled when in fact they can be recycled and reused many times. Each cartridge can take up to 1000 years to biodegrade so by recycling with Money to Schools you really are helping to protect the environment.
Each item we receive is sorted, cleaned and graded according to stringent standards by our team of highly trained experts. Reusable cartridges are refilled and mobile phones are sent for re-use in developing countries. All packaging materials received are also recycled so nothing goes to waste.
We have been working hard on our Fundraising White Paper series and I really think it offers some exciting possibilities for your school. We have just launched Part One - Working with Local Businesses, which you can download below and print. This informative document explains the huge potential for your school to earn significant extra cash simply by contacting local businesses. Do have a look and see what you think.
