We collect lots of items to recycle at our HQ. These can be brought along and we get some money in return. The following can be recycled:
- Old mobile phones – simply pop in the envelopes at the HQ and post them free of charge.
- Used printer ink cartridges – pop two cartridges in the envelopes at the HQ and post them free of charge.
- Clothing, shoes and towels – bagged and placed in the Rag Bag bin in the car park of our HQ. All of these are either resold or recycled, find out more on their website.
If you are a UK tax payer, you can also Gift Aid any donations to the group (including subs and capitation money).
This means we can claim back some money (25p for every £1) from the government, at no expense to yourself. Our sections may ask our parents to fill out a Gift Aid form upon registration or on OSM.
