Help Save Our Environment and Raise Money by Recycling!

Recycle for extratime !

Here are 4 easy ways that you can support extratime while doing your bit for the environment –

–      Save used stamps from letters and parcels that you receive – we can get £10 for about a pillow case-full.  £10 can buy quite a lot of paint J  Why not ask your friends, family, colleagues to save them too ?

–      Do you use baby wipes ?  We collect the empty packs, take them to the Green  Centre in Brighton and they recycle them for us via Terracycle – http://www.terracycle.co.uk/en-UK/brigades/johnsons.html  This scheme is sponsored by Johnson’s but any brand (including supermarkets’ own) can be recycled

–      Have you got a new mobile phone ?  What are going to do with the old one – put it in a drawer and forget about it ?  Noooooo – give it to extratime !! We will recycle it through Recycle4Charity – we can get as much as £70 for your old phone.  See http://www.recycle4charity.co.uk/MobilePhones for more details

–      Do you print at home ?  If so, then we may be able to recycle your old ink cartridges, depending on the brand that you use.  See http://www.recycle4charity.co.uk/InkjetCartridges for more information and to check whether your cartridges could be recycled.

So – used postage stamps, empty baby wipe packs, old mobile phones and empty ink cartridges – these need never go in your bin again.  Just bring them in to our charity shop (at 15 Station Road – near Peacocks, opposite Iceland – in Portslade) or to one of our clubs or holiday schemes or to our office at Emmaus, and we will do the rest.
