The Reclaim-it Collection Point Box
To assist in collecting mobile phones and empty laser & inkjet cartridges, Reclaim-it can provide a cardboard Collection Point Box.
The boxes have been designed to safely store up to 18 laser cartridges, up to 1000 inkjets and mobile phones, or a combination of all three.
Collection boxes are a great way to encourage donations, and can be placed in strategic places in your corporate supporters' offices as well as your own to help promote the recycling scheme.
The Reclaim-it reply paid envelope
Specifically designed for the return of mobile phones and inkjet cartridges, the reply paid envelope offers a quick and convenient way to donate these smaller items for recycling.
They are perfect when placed in charity shops or included in mail shots to your supporters.
To make use of the Reply Paid Envelope Scheme, supporters insert the inkjet cartridge or mobile phone with battery into the envelope, seal, and drop in the mail box - it's that simple.
Personalised envelopes can also be produced for certain clients, at a minimum order of 50,000.
There is also a dispenser box available, which is ideal for placing on reception desks or shop counters and can be distributed locally by supporters.
These hold the envelopes neatly and conveniently, allowing supporters to help themselves.
The envelopes and dispenser box are free and the postage has already been paid, so there is no charge to yourself or to your supporters.
eClaim is a revolutionary new service that allows charities to establish a mobile phone and cartridge recycling service directly from their own website, without the need to set up any costly infrastructure.
In doing so, you can develop an environmentally friendly means of generating additional income from such items, without the need to collect or handle them.
We provide a dedicated page on our website, which carries your organisation's logo and profile.
This will provide your supporters with the opportunity to get involved with the Reclaim-it collection scheme for old mobile phones and empty printer cartridges.
Then it is simply a case of setting up a link from your homepage to the Reclaim-it site - and that's it.
Supporters who are interested in recycling visit your website and follow the link to your page at Reclaim-it.
They then fill in their contact details and order the necessary collection media - be it a collection box or reply paid envelopes and dispenser box.
Reclaim-it registers the new contact as your supporter. All cartridges or mobile phones returned by the supporter generate funds for your charity.
