Ink cartridges & toners
We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with The Recycling Factory to recycle ink cartridges. Recycling for Ovacome couldn’t be easier, and there is no cost to you or your company. Please call The Recycling Factory on 0800 091 0696 or email email@example.com to arrange collection. They can normally arrange this for the next working day after you contact them. Collections are booked via FedEx and take place between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday.
What they can’t recycle:
Laser toner cartridges
Sharp, Toshiba, Xerox or Ricoh
Compatible or Re-filled cartridges
Old and new UK and foreign coins & bank notes
These can be from any country and of any age, so all of those obsolete pre-euro notes are a perfect start! Ever wondered what to do with the loose holiday change you have lying around? You can now donate your unwanted foreign coins / bank notes to help raise money for Ovacome.
They accept the following:
All foreign coins
Old British and Irish money
New and used stamps and old postcards
It doesn’t matter if they have already been used, or if they are everyday first or second class stamps – we can collect enough of them to raise money for Ovacome. We can raise more money from overseas stamps. We also collect first day covers, presentation packs and albums.
Stamps are mostly sold by weight, if we can identify any valuable stamps they can be sold for a higher price. As a general guideline Ovacome can expect to receive around £10 for one kilogram of British stamps. We also raise up to £15 for a kilogram of overseas stamps. Do encourage your friends and family, at home and abroad, to save their stamps for Ovacome.
Please cut the stamp off the envelope leaving approximately 1cm of envelope bordering each stamp. The rest of the envelope can be discarded (which will make it cheaper to send). Please separate the stamps into:
Overseas – Jersey, Guernsey, Eire and Isle of Man are classed as overseas
The value of a stamp does not matter, so 1p stamps can be grouped together with £1 stamps.
Please send your stamps to: Ovacome Stamp collection, 52-54 Featherstone Street, London EC1Y 8RT
If you would like receipt of Ovacome receiving your stamps please enclose an email address with your name in your envelope. We are unfortunately unable to provide stamp collection boxes.
