Recycling

FACT! Each year in the UK... - 65% of textile waste is binned by the fashion hungry British
- Over 30million inkjet cartridges are dumped - the same weight as 18 Blue Whales!
- Around 90million phones are hiding in drawers - weighing six times as much as the London Eye!

Recycling is not only good for the environment; it’s also great for The Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity. We can turn you unwanted clothes, shoes, accessories, blankets, mobile phones, CD’s, DVD’s and printer cartridges into cash. You’ll be helping us complete the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales and the best thing… it won’t cost you a penny!
