What do I do?

  • Sort through your drawers and jewellery boxes for all those broken, unwanted bits and pieces.
  • Gold, silver, watches, costume jewellery, odd earrings, snapped chains, and broken watches.
  • Find any Old/New UK and foreign bank notes. Any unwanted currency from ANY country and of any age, so all of those obsolete pre-euro notes are fantastic!
  • Collect items from all your friends and family too.
  • Place your items in an envelope or jiffy bag and send them to the free post address.

Don't bin your empty ink cartridges - recycle them!

Every year over 500 million empty toner and inkjet cartridges (“empties”) go to landfill. Takeback Ltd’s aim is to help reduce this figure and help to save the environment. As part of their environmental commitment Takeback Ltd aim to comply and where possible exceed all legislative requirements; prevent pollution and increase the positive impact occurring as a result of their activities; continually improve and monitor all environmental procedures and considerations; reduce consumption of resources and improve efficiency in the use of these resources; actively promote recycling both internally and amongst their customers and suppliers and not to send any toner, inkjet cartridges or mobile phones to landfill.
 
You can help save the environment and help Thyroid UK raise funds too by sending us your used cartridges (except Epson cartridges or compatibles).
 
The “bag check” option on their website, allows you to type in the ink type, brand and number and this will tell you whether or not it is acceptable

If Takeback accept your ink cartridges, then simply send them to Thyroid UK and we will put them with our collection until we have enough to send off.

Cash for Cartridges are able to recycle some cartridges that are not recycled by other companies. They do not accept toner cartridges, though.

For an easier option to help us raise funds, simply send your empty ink cartridges to us and
we'll sort them and send them off. They will pay us up to £4.50 per cartridge, depending on the brand, so it will really help us if you send your empty cartridges!
