Raise Money, Recycle and protect Your Environment
Information for Primary Schools
Recycling really is a very easy way for you to raise money, whilst encouraging social responsibility to your pupils through recycling and supporting the environment. We supply you (at no cost to yourselves) with everything you will need to collect unwanted;
Old/New UK & Foreign Currency
We even provide a prize incentive for one pupil and arrange the valuation, sale and recycling of the collected items.
What Items do we ask for?
We do not ask for valuable items - just unwanted jewellery, currency & mobile phones.
JEWELLERY - Donors can give absolutely any unwanted jewellery, odd earrings, broken chain's, costume jewellery, broken watches, children's jewellery etc. In all materials; plastics, wood, bronze, gold, silver, metal etc. All items are recycled... the recycling of all these different materials has been the success of our project as we are able to turn peoples unwanted pieces into cash.
FOREIGN CURRENCY - These can be from ANY country and any age, so all those obsolete pre euro notes and coins are a perfect start!
MOBILE PHONES – Any age & condition.
How Does It Work For Primary Schools?
You simply contact us to get the ball rolling.
We will arrange with you a suitable week for your collection to take place. We recommend that you start your project on a Thursday/Friday during term time.
We will send a container with sufficient collecting envelopes for all of your pupils, and prizes.
The envelopes are distributed by 'pupil post' on the Thursday or Friday, asking for their return the following week for inclusion in the prize draw.
As the envelopes return they are placed in the container the envelopes arrived in. At the end of the week you draw one envelope from the container and arrange to award the prizes to the lucky winner.
You seal the container and we arrange for it to be collected.
When we have received your recycling envelopes back we carefully sift through the unwanted items and arrange for them to be recycled. We do not pay a set amount based on weight, it is based on what your donor's give hence every envelope is opened and very carefully sifted. With the careful sifting process the recycling of your items can take some time hence we always say it takes us a maximum of 8 weeks before we send you the cheque.
Top Tip for a really successful event:
If parents offer their families, friends and work colleagues a chance to join in and clear out their unwanted items your result is sure to improve. We will supply plenty of spare collecting envelopes - so spread the word!

Why should I recycle?
Recycling reduces the demand for raw materials. This means less mining or quarrying. Many parts of the world have been blighted by mining and quarrying, which destroy the natural environment and wildlife habitats and can cause environmental and health problems for local people. Recycling is one way in which our community can lessen their usage of resources and help protect the environment.
