Supporting Alzheimer’s Society with recycling
ERS Medical is supporting Alzheimer’s Society with a recycling scheme to turn unwanted items into vital funds for the charity. Run by Alzheimer’s Society and Recycling for Good Causes, the scheme provides businesses with recycling boxes to donate unwanted technology products, old and broken jewellery, foreign coins, cameras and stamps. A free courier pickup can be arranged for donated items with a combined weight over 10kgs.
Rolled out across over 20 ERS Medical sites across the country, the scheme welcomes donations of:
• Old jewellery – Jewellery of any kind, including broken and unwanted items
• Foreign coins – All coins and notes accepted, including obsolete currency
• Cameras – Old film, digital and video
• Stamps – Loose stamps, albums, first day covers, presentation packs, collections, postcard collections
• Technology – Sat-navs, iPods, MP3 players, DVD players, games consoles, laptops, tablets, iPads and more
Andrew Pooley, Managing Director at ERS Medical, says: “Alzheimer’s Society is our corporate charity partner and we’re always looking at new ways to raise awareness and funds to support them. This recycling scheme is a huge positive in the right direction as it encourages environmentally friendly behaviours while generating vital funds for the charity.”
Julie Lee, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society, said: “We are thrilled that ERS Medical are supporting our recycling campaign with staff donating their unwanted items and converting them into much needed funds.”
“We rely heavily on our kind supporters taking on such activities to enable us to support people living with dementia, campaign on their behalf and fund research.
