Perhaps one of the lesser known days in the Awareness Day calendar, National Old Stuff Day, which falls on Friday 2 March, is all about the re-purposed, the recycled and the reusable. Here are a few ideas about how you and your organisation can get involved, all while helping Rainbow Trust.
Give the office a spring clean
Tying in with the weekend of the ‘Great British Spring Clean’, why not de-clutter your office space by donating your old technology to us? Through our relationship with recycling company Redeem Group, we are able to arrange the bulk collection of your old or damaged computers and devices, free of charge, which are then recycled responsibly and in compliance with current regulations.
Rainbow Trust then receives any value that the devices may have as a donation. There really is no better excuse to rally your staff and bring a little Zen to your work space whilst helping the environment.
Donate your old phones
Start an old phone amnesty, where staff can even bring in their old handsets from home.
Recycle used cartridges
Does your company throw away used toner cartridges? Rainbow Trust can benefit from you recycling them! A collection box can be supplied and once filled with a minimum of 15 cartridges, we will arrange for this to be collected and for a replacement box to be delivered. It’s as simple as that.
Please contact us for the list of cartridges which our recycler is able to accept.
