Blimey! It’s been a busy couple of weeks! I reckon the last time I spoke to you, we were about to head up to Crufts, which seems like an age away now. Didn’t Katy & Folly do us absolutely proud?! I lose count of the people who contacted us, so inspired were they by their story. Other highlights were our Main Arena display, which was broadcast live on YouTube, and a hectic time on our stand resulting in nearly £4,000 in donations and merchandise sales.

You can help the environment, and raise funds for Canine Partners, by recycling your old printer cartridges and mobile phones
Recycling in partnership with Reclaim-it
In partnership with Reclaim-it, a leading Electronic Waste management company we have developed a scheme to turn empty laser printer, inkjet printer cartridges and old mobile phones into valuable funds to help continue our invaluable work.
Did you know that at present, 75% of all empty printer cartridges are disposed of as normal waste when in fact a very high proportion of them can be recycled for re-use, reducing the environmental burden on landfill sites and the energy consumed in their manufacture; product list here...
How Does The Scheme Work?
There are 3 ways in which you can recycle your empty cartridges or mobile phones:
- We can locate one or more collection boxes in your office and once it is full Reclaim-it will collect it totally free of charge and donate the value of the cartridges to Canine Partners;
- We can supply you with a quantity of reply paid envelopes for the safe return of your empty inkjet cartridges;
- You can click on this link to eClaim, to arrange the free collection of your old mobile phones and or empty printer cartridges.
