It’s been an interesting week. Starting off in Wiltshire, with our friends from Help for Heroes at the Tedworth House Recovery Centre for ‘wounded, injured and sick’ members of the armed services community. There are close links between Canine Partners and Help for Heroes and we keep in regular contact. From there, the focus moved to Dorset, where we were giving demonstrations to the team at CHS, who have been helping us to develop our creative juices. They loved meeting demo dogs Saffy and Yarna-banana. In fact they loved them so much that they took us completely by surprise by presenting us with a cheque for £2,000 to help us train more dogs and change more people’s lives. Wow! Thank you! Read more
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.
