So, who are we and what do we do?
Greenlight Cartridge Recycling was formed in late 2011 and we are located near Barnsley in South Yorkshire. Our mission is to play our part in ensuring a cleaner environment in the future for the generations to come, we wanted to do our bit and we wanted to make a difference!
Firstly, to try and help reduce the impact of discarded computer printer cartridges and mobile phones on our beautiful planet and secondly, to help raise funds for our three chosen charities, The British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support and The Leeds & Wakefield District RSPCA.
We all are touched everyday by the fantastic work that charities do in the UK, most are severely underfunded and depend solely on donations from generous businesses and individuals to survive. Most of us have directly or indirectly been affected by Cancer or Heart related illnesses at some time of our lives and here at Greenlight Cartridge Recycling we are very proud, with the generous support of our business colleagues, to be able to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and The British Heart Foundation. We have all watched in horror, the TV documentaries and seen news articles showing the cruelty that some people inflict on innocent animals in the UK, so we are proud to also help raise funds for our local RSPCA and minimize the suffering and help to find new loving homes for lots of animals around the Yorkshire area.
A few facts!
Did you know that in the last decade alone, according to the latest statistics, over 250 million cartridges have been thrown away? At present only 5% of used cartridges are recycled.That means 95% of all used cartridges end up in landfill sites where it can take over 1000 years to decompose! Not good news for our environment and for the future generations. Here at Greenlight Cartridge Recycling we believe that we all have a part to play in preserving our planet so that it can still be enjoyed in years to come so, with this in mind we work very closely with the Environmental Agency and all sectors of business to help them reduce and dispose of their waste in an environmentally friendly manner and operate a zero to landfill policy.
