In order to raise funds for the expedition the Unit are currently involved in recycling the following:
Mobile phones Ė
those that are in working condition can have some recycle
value. Please remove SIM cards (any SIM card sent in error will be
removed and destroyed but for security reasons cannot be
returned). Phones must have a battery and be working to have any value
although those that do not work or are too damaged to recycle will be
accepted to reduce harmful chemicals going to landfill. It is not
necessary to send the chargers (although these will be accepted).
Inkjet cartridges -
over 13 million plastic inkjet cartridges are sent to landfill in the
UK every year. Whilst these have a small recyclable value every little
helps. Note you cannot recycle Epson cartridges or previously recycled
cartridges, only original HP, Lexmark and some Canon (i.e. those with a
metal contact strip).

money for the Explorer Belt. Through Rag Bag your are able to help
