Empties Please

We have come across a great new and easy way to raise funds for our school through recycling used ink cartridges.

We are working with a company called “Empties Please”.  They collect and recycle used ink and toner cartridges the environmentally friendly way and will donate the money raised back to us!

To view what empty ink cartridges we can recycle please visit www.emptiesplease.com or check on the attachment to this email.

You could also display a bin in your workplace on behalf of the EPFA to raise funds!  If you are interested please contact Empties Please on 0844 879 7179 or email info@emptiesplease.com  Please ensure you tell them it is for Engayne Primary School so proceeds are credited to us.

Bags for the used cartridges are next to the bin in the school reception area.  Only accessible during school hours. 

The more cartridges we can collect the more we can raise.  The sky’s the limit! Let’s make it a great success
