Pet charity’s Recycle Week

What’s that saying about one person’s trash being someone else’s treasure?

Pet charity PDSA is appealing to your animal-loving readers to look again at old, half-forgotten items and donate them to help sick and injured pets during Recycle Week (June 17-23).

Used stamps, spent printer cartridges, old mobile phones and foreign coins – currently gathering dust in homes and offices – can gain a new lease of life with PDSA. Clothing and unwanted gifts are also welcome donations to PDSA stores nationwide.

By recycling all of these items, the charity’s friends and supporters can help raise funds to help more pets in need of vets in your community.

Recycling everyday items such as mobile phones and ink cartridges is a great way for companies, schools and offices to get involved. Holding a mobile phone amnesty could be one way to get all those redundant mobiles out of dusty boxes and off to the recycling company.
